Observance of the 150th Anniversary of the Signing of 
the Declaration of Independence. 

The Mayor submitted the following communication: 

Office of the Mayor,) 
Chicago, November 3, 1926. j 

To the Honorable, the City Council of the City of 
Chicago: 

Gentlemen — The year 1926 marks the 150th an- 
niversary of the signing and pronouncement of the 
Declaration of Independence of the United States of 
America. 

I ami in receipt of communications (hereto at- 
tached) from representatives of the following civic, 
educational, religious, social and business organ- 
izations urging that this sequi-centennial be fitting- 
ly commemorated by the citizens of Chicago: 

Union League Club, 
Chicago Women's Club, 
All Chicago Kiwanis Clubs, 
Woman's City Club of Chicago, 
Exhibitors' Association of Chicago, 
Chicago League of Women Voters Forum, 
Junior Association of Commerce, 
Jewish People's Institute, 
Iroquois Club, 



Chicago Home Missionary and Church Extension 

Society, 
Chicago Women's Aid, 
Illinois Turn District, 
Olivet Institute, 
-Mr. Morgan Hogge, Assistant Superintendent of 

Schools of the City of Chicago. 

The communications above referred to variously 
suggest Thanksgiving week or the week beginning 
Sunday, December 5th, and ending Saturday, De- 
cember 11th, as an appropriate time for this cele- 
bration. The later date is now favored because it 
will afford more time for preparation. 

I am sure we are all in hearty accord with the 
following sentiment so eloquently expressed in the 
communication of the President of the Union League 
Club: 

"Nothing should be left undone by the executive 
and legislative officers in every locality of the 
country to keep fresh in the minds of the people 
of every generation the high principles of po- 
litical philosophy and justice upon which the 
government of the United States was established, 
because the perpetuity of our institutions rests 
upon continued acknowledgment and acceptance 
of these principles. 

"It is particularly important that such officers 
avail themselves of every opportunity to exem- 
plify those principles to the minds of those in- 
habitants of the country who have more recently 
come to the United States with the intention of 
remaining here and becoming citizens. Adherence 
to such principles must be renewed and re- 
affirmed from time to time in order that con- 
stantly renewing generations of people may not 
lose sight of them in the tremendous activities of 
the most complex life that so far as we know 
men have lived in this world." 

I, therefore, respectfully suggest the passage of 
a suitable resolution proclaiming the period from 
Sunday, December 5th to Saturday, December 11th, 
1926 inclusive, as "Independence Celebration Week" 
and authorizing the appointment of a committee to 
enlist the co-operation of churches, schools, clubs, 
patriotic, civic, social, labor and business organiza- 
tions of Chicago, in' holding City-wide patriotic 
services during this week commemorative of the 
150th anniversary of the promulgation of the char- 
ter of American liberty. 



Respectfully submitted.

The following resolution was submitted with the 
foregoing communication: 

Whereas, The year 1926 mark ;'^Oth anni- 

versary of the signing and pror ouiuei:! uf the 
Declaration of Independence of the onited States cf 
America; and 

Whereas, Numerous civic, educational, religious, 
social and business organizations have urged upon 
the Mayor and the City Council of the City of Chi- 
cago that this sequi-centennial should be fittingly 
commemorated by the citizens of Chicago; and 

Whereas, His Honor the Mayor has this day, in a 
message regularly communicated to the City Council 
of the City of Chicago, suggested the passage of a 
resolution proclaiming the period from Sunday, De- 
cember '5th to Saturday, December Uth, 1926, in-

the appointment of a eommittee to enlist the co- 
operation of churches, schools, clubs, patriotic, 
civic, social, labor and business organizations of 
Chicago in holding appropriate City-wide patriotic 
services and exercises commemorative of this 150'th 
anniversary; now, therefore, be it 

Resolved, That the period from Sunday, December 
5th to Saturday, December ilth, 1926, be and the 
same is hereby designated 'Independence Celebration 
Week" and the Mayor is hereby authorized and di- 
rected to appoint a committee of men and women 
representative of all elements of our citizenship 
(the number to be left to his discretion), which 
committee shall devise ways and means to enlist 
the co-operation of churches, schools, clubs, pa- 
triotic, civic, social, labor and business organiza- 
tions of Chicago in holding appropriate City-wide 
patriotic services and exercises commemorative of 
this 150th anniversary. 

Unanimous consent was given to permit action on 
said resolution without reference thereof to a com- 
mittee. 

Alderman WoodhuU moved to adopt said resolution. 

The motion prevailed. 



The City Clerk thereupon presented communica- 
tions from the German Club of Chicago and The Young 
Womien's Christian Association of Chicago suggesting 
that suitable steps be taken to comm-emorate the 150th 
anniversary of the signing of the Declaration of In- 
dependence, which were ordered 

Placed on file. 

In the Matteir of the Ck)nstruction of Passenger 
Subways. 

The Mayor submitted the following special message, 
which was ordered published and referred to the Com- 
mittee on Local Transportation: 

Office of the Mayor, [ 
Chicago, November 3, 1926.1 

To the Honorable, the City Council of the City of 
Chicago: 

Gentlemen — In a separate communication of this 
date I have briefly reviewed our municipal progress 
during the past year. That progress has, in many 
respects, been most gratifying. The final and com- 
plete elimination of the obstacles to the straighten- 
ing of the South Branch of the Chicago River mak- 
ing possible the opening of additional streets to the 
South and West Sides and the development of im- 
proved passenger and freight terminals, the com- 
pletion of the new two-level Wacker Drive improve- 
ment, the starting of the LaSalle Street Bridge, the 
scientific study of our traific problems and harbor 
facilities, the notable progress on major street wid- 
ening projects, track elevation and extension of our 
municipal lighting facilities — to mention only the 
more important accomplishments — constitute an im- 
pressive record of achievement. 

I am sure, however, that I share with your Hon- 
orable Body a feeling of disappointment that more 
definite progress has not been made toward a settle- 
ment of our local transportation problems. In say- 
ing this it is far from my intention to criticise your 
Honorable Body or your Local Transportation Com- 



mittee. On the contrary, I know that your Local 
Transportation Committee has been working most 
diligently and is earnestly striving to bring about 
a comprehensive solution which it can present to 
the Council. Neither is it my purpose in this com- 
munication to attempt to fix the blame, if there be 
any, for the failure up to this time to obtain such 
a solution. I want here to deal specifically with 
one phase of the transportation problem, viz: the 
construction of subways. 

In a previous message to your Honorable Body 
(October' 22, 1924) I discussed the subject of sub- 
way construction as part of a proposed plan for a 
comprehensive unified system of transportation 
through the acquisition of the system of surface 
and elevated lines in Chicago by purchase with spe- 
cial bonds or certificates authorized by the terms 
of the so-called Mueller Act (1903) and the Public 
Ownership Act (1913). In that message I asserted 
certain propositions which I then considered and 
now consider to be fundamental in subway con- 
struction : 

First — that the City of Chicago should own and 
control all subways. 

Second — that there is no reasonable possibility 
that either the Chicago Surface Lines or the Chi- 
cago Rapid Transit Company can finance the cost 
of any considerable subway construction for the 
reason that the resultant increase in their fixed 
charges without a proportionate increase in car 
fares would impose upon them an additional bur- 
den which they could not carry. 

Third — that the only agency legally and finan- 
cially able to construct subways is the City of 
Chicago through the use of its Traction Fund 
with such additions as can be made thereto by 
money derived from special assessments against 
property peculiarly benefited by the subway con- 
struction. 

Fourth — that while subway construction is the 
most expensive type of railway construction, the 
building of subways in other cities has invari- 
ably proved highly profitable to property owners 
whose property was in close proximity to the 
subway and that it was no more than equitable 
that such property so specially benefited should 
bear a proper proportion of the cost of such sub- 
way construction. 

In that communication I further suggested, rec- 
ognizing that some delay was necessarily incident 
to any special assessment proceeding, that agree- 
ments might be made out of court with owners of 
property adjacent and near to a proposed subway 
by which such owners would voluntarily agree to 
pay a reasonable portion of the cost of such sub- 
ways. Specifically, I said : 

"The fact that property adjacent to a subway 
line is enormously benefited and its value stab- 
ilized is so well known that property owners along 
all of the downtown streets in which subways 
might be built will, in my opinion, be more than 
willing to co-operate with the City in hastening 
subway construction. 

"In reaching a conclusion as to the feasibility 
of constructing subways by special assessment, it 
would, I think, be wise for your Local Transpor- 
tation Committee to ascertain what inducements 
by way of contribution to their cost the property 
owners on available streets would oiTer the City 
for the location of the subway in their particular 
streets. In any event, the possibility of securing 
such financial aid from property owners should

be invesLigated before any final decision is made 
as to tiie plan of financing the construction of 
such subway or its exact location." 

Your Local Transportation Committee is to be 
congralulaled ui)oii a recent very definite and valu- 
able contribution to the solution of the problem of 
subway construction in Chicago. A sub-committee 
lOf your Local Transportation Committee called to 
its aid a Citizen's Subway Advisory Commission, 
consisting of 'Messrs. Russell Tyson, Gordon Strong, 
Barney Balaban, Harry J. Powers, Earl Schultz, El- 
mer C. Stephens, Ernest J. Stevens and George M. 
Tobey. This Commission, in August of this year, 
submitted its report and copies of the same have 
been furnished to each member of the Council. 

Without desiring to usurp the function of the 
Local Transportation Committee to analyze, criti- 
cize, adopt or reject the conclusions and recom- 
mendations of this report, and without attempting 
in any way to influence your action upon it, I 
think I may, with entire propriety, direct your at- 
tention to certain statements of fact contained there- 
in which furnish a partial basis for certain con- 
clusions which I shall presently draw and certain 
recommendations which I shall make. 

In that report, (pp. 304-307) it is said: 

"But New York, through the transportation 
companies and through the City, has built HI 
miles of elevated and 70 miles of subway struc- 
ture, conferring hundreds of millions of special 
benefit to properties in districts where construct- 
ed, without collecting a single dollar of special 
assessment. Moreover, while the legislative pro- 
vision above quoted, and applying to new con- 
struction, makes special assessments possible le- 
gally, it is thought to be impossible politically. 
It is thought that the owners proposed to be as- 
sessed for new construction can make capital of 
the fact that all of the previous construction was 
without special assessment and that they oan 
practically defeat an attempt to apply special as- 
sessment for all time to come. 

"New York now confronts a new construction 
problem of five hundred million dollars more. 
And, shackled by practical precedents of the past. 
New York confronts the inability to raise a single 
dollar towards this new construction from the 
property to be specially and greatly benefited 
thereby. 

"The lesson to be learned from New York is 
that the City of Chicago should not build one 
foot of rapid transit structure, either elevated or 
subway, without the application of the principle 
of special assessment; lest Chicago be precluded 
from this important method of financing for all 
time to come. 

"It is to be noted that Detroit is making very 
definite provisions, both by law and by its am- 
bitious engineering and financing plans, for the 
partial but substantial financing of both elevated 
and subway construction by special assessment." 
Further, at page 348 of the report, it is said: 

"If we may learn from the example of cities 
which have preceded us in subway construction 
— if we may see logic in the comprehensive and 
carefully reasoned plans of Detroit — if we may 
apply the same economics and equities to our 
transportation structures that we have already 
applied to our street widening, double-decking 
and some of our bridges — then we shall start our 
subway construction upon a financing plan of 
partial payment by special assessment." 



In connection with this particular subject of sub- 
way construction by special assessment, it is perti- 
nent to observe that Section 10 of the Public Own- 
ership Act (1913) expressly recognizes the right of 
the City to use moneys raised by special assess- 
ment for the construction of municipally-owned 
public utilities. This Section reads as follows: 
"The expense of acquiring any such public 
utility, or the property necessary or appropriate 
for the operation thereof, or any part thereof, 
cither by purchase, condemnation or construction. 
or such part of the expense as may be just and 
reasonable, may in any city be assessed upon and 
collected from the property and real estate spe- 
cially benefited thereby, if any, in such manner 
as is or may be provided by law for the ma:king 
of special assessments for local improvements in 
such city." 

I have thought and still think that the ideal way 
of dealing with the problem of subway construc- 
tion would be to deal with it as an integral part 
of a general settlement of all phases of the traction 
question. It was so dealt with in an ordinance 
passed by your Honorable Body and approved by 
me on February 27, 1925. This ordinance was, how- 
ever, passed subject to a referendum and failed of 
popular approval. 

Since April, 1925, your Local Transportation Com- 
mittee has been endeavoring to reach an agreement 
with the surface and elevated lines for an ordinance 
protective of the proper interests of the City and 
the existing transportation companies, and which 
would provide, among other things, for a unifica- 
tion of all existing transportation services, and for 
the construction and most efficient use of subways 
in connection with the service to be rendered by 
such unified transportation system, and I would not 
feel justified in advocating any program which 
would in any way endange'r the ultimate working 
out of the other phases of the transportation prob- 
lem which are equally important and must be solved 
before anything like adequate transportation can 
be afforded to all portions of the city. I am not, 
therefore, suggesting an interruption or suspension 
of the negotiations now being conducted py yuur 
Local Transportation Committee with the represen- 
tatives of the present surface and elevated compa- 
nies for a so-called terminable permit, and with 
other persons for a twenty-year grant. On the con- 
trary, I think these negotiations should be prose- 
cuted with the utmost diligence. 

However, while it would in many ways be more 
desirable to deal with subway construction as a 
part of the larger problem of a complete traction 
settlement, these facts, in my opinion, stand out 
and must be faced : 

First: Subways should and in all likelihood in 
any event will be constructed by the City. 

Second : Because of a practical unanimity 
of disinterested and well-informed opinion on the 
equity and desirability of it, such subways will be 
paid for in part by special assessment against prop- 
erty specially benefited by such construction. 

Third: There will inevitably be some delay in 
the construction of any subway because of (a) the 
necessity of determining and fixing the location and 
type of such subways; (b) the preparation of en- 
gineering plans and specifications and special as- 
sessment ordinances; (c) the holding of a referen- 
dum election as provided by law; (d) the making of 
agreements wherever possible with property own- 
ers to avoid protracted court proceedings and (e) 
the disposition of such court proceedings.

Fourth: Neaotiations for a general tracliou 
"settlement are Ukely to be considerably prolonged 
and valuable time is lost which otherwise might be 
employed in preparing plans, specifications and 
necessary ordinances, in holding the required rel- 
erendum" and. if the result of that referendum fa- 
vors subway construction, in validating special as- 
sessment proceedings. 

I have already referred to the delays and ob- 
stacle^ preliminary to actual subway construction 
by the Citv, assuming that it is determined on ref- 
erendum to build subways and finance their con- 
struction in part by special assessment. May I now 
direct vour attention to these in some detail and m 
what occurs to me as a proper order of precedence : 

First- It is necessary to decide definitely upon 
{a^ subway routes, (b) the type and character of 
such subways, and (c) provide full and complete 
engineering plans therefor. 

Second: It will be necessary, under the law, to 
submit such plans for subway construction, owner- 
ship and operation (either by the City or through 
leases to the surface and elevated companies) to a 
referendum. 

Third : If the referendum is favorable to subway 
construction, insofar as the financial plan involves 
the assessment of private property it will be neces- 
sary to obtain judicial confirmation. 

First: Location of Subway Routes and 

Deternaiiiation of Typ© and Character 

of Subways. 

Obviously the first question to be determined is 
the kind of a subway which it is most desirable to 
build and the location of such subway. 

The report of the Subway Advisory Commission 
to which reference has already been made, again 
makes it perfectly apparent that a so-called com- 
prehensive subway, that is, one designed to serve 
every locality in Chicago, is financially impossible. 
Accepting as correct th'e cost for subway construc- 
tion as given in that report (pp. 64-65) at $5,600, 
000 per mile, and assuming that approximately one- 
half of the cost of subway construction would be 
raised by special assessments and the balance of 
such costs paid from the City's Traction Fund, the 
total amount thus available— approximately $90,- 
000,000 — would provide sixteen miles of subway. 
Having in mind that the present elevated system 
in Chicago which serves only 20 per cent of the car 
riding public is over seventy miles in length and 
that the surface lines system consists of over 1100 
single track miles, the utter inadequacy of sixteen 
miles of subway to serve every part of the city 
must be obvious to anyone. 

The only subway construction possible, there- 
fore, under present financial limitations, is a sub- 
way of limited extent. It should be so located as 
to serve the greatest number of our citizens, and 
be capable of extension into the several Sections 
of the City when our financial condition will per- 
mit further construction. With these factors in 
mind, it seems to be generally conceded that sub- 
way construction should be started in the so-called 
central business district, (a) so as to afford pas- 
sengers rapid transit through and to various points 
within the central business district and (b) to re- 
lieve street surface congestion within the central 
business district. 

The construction of such subways in the central 



business district will relieve the pressure at what 
is aptly called the "neck of the bottle" and permit 
the use of a much larger number of cars on the 
lines connecting with such subways, and a more 
rapid movement thereof. The construction of sueh 
subways will thus inure to the benefit of all who 
use the transportation system, whether they actual- 
ly travel through the subways or not. 

As to the precise location of such subways, the 
Subway Advisory Commission's report advocates 
(pp. 184-187 and pp. 224-225) : 

(A) A "high-level" subway for elevated trains, 
the north portal of which would be north of Chi- 
cago avenue and west of Franklin street, with two 
of the tracks of the present elevated line grading 
down into the subway at that point. This subway 
would extend east on Chicago avenue to North 
State street, thence south on North State street 
grading down under the river and grading up again 
to standard level at Randolph street, thence south 
on State street to Roosevelt road, where it would 
turn east and grade up through its south portal to 
connect with the elevated structure in the alley 
between State street and Wabash avenue. From 
Randolph street south to Polk street this subway 
would be of four-track construction; for the bal- 
ance of the route indicated it would be of two- 
track construction. 

(B) A "low-level" subway for street cars pass- 
ing under the State street "high-level" subway, the 
northwest portal of which would be the present 
west portal of the present Washington boulevard 
tunnel at Clinton street. The east portal of the 
Washington boulevard tunnel would be covered 
over. The subway would continue east on Wash- 
ington boulevard to Michigan avenue, thence south 
on Michigan avenue to Jackson boulevard, thence 
west on Jackson boulevard to Franklin street, thence 
south one-half block on Franklin street to enter 
the so-called Van Buren street tunnel (of which 
the east portal would be covered over) thence west 
to the present west portal of the Van Buren street 
tunnel, which would be the southwest portal of this 
subway loop. 

These subways are estimated by the Subway Ad- 
visory Commission on the figures given to it by its 
engineering counsel, Major R. F. Kelker, Jr., to cost 
$32,500,000 (without equipment, which it is con- 
templated would be furnished by the operating 
transportation companies and would cost $4,100,000 
more.) 

The subway routes indicated by the Subway Ad- 
visory Commission are stated in the report to be 
substantially the same routes which were recom- 
mended in the Bion J. Arnold subway report of 
1911, the Board of Supervising Engineers' subway 
report of 1913, the report of the Chicago Traction 
& Subway Commission of 1915 and the report of 
Major R. F. Kelker of 1923. 

I am not definitely suggesting the above routes 
as the most appropriate for immediate subway con- 
struction, nor do I mean to exclude other or addi- 
tional routes from your consideration. These are 
questions peculiarly for your determination. 

You should particularly consider in this connec- 
tion whether it is not possible to so locate subways 
that they will form indispensable parts of am/ 
transportation system which may be established in 
the city whether as the result of pending negotia- 
tions or otherwise. In other words, so locate the 
subways that if the pending negotiations with the 
elevated and surface lines and other interests are 



4532

satisfactorily consummated, they can be easily and 
efficiently co-ordinated with the existing surface 
and elevated lines, or, on the other hand, should 
such negotiations fail and the City decide to grant 
a franchise to a new company or decide to con- 
struct and operate an independent and competing 
transportation system, such subways would con- 
si it ute an advantageous beginning and nucleus of 
such a system. 

It would seem, therefore, that if there has been 
such a substantial agreement in the several reports 
above referred to and if there are certain subways 
which can be constructed and form indispensable 
parts of our existing transportation system or any 
other that may be authorized or established by the 
City, your Honorable Body should have compara- 
tively little diiticulty in determining promptly upon 
the proper location of the initial subway construc- 
tion. 

Second: IVocessity for a Referendum. 

Aside from my settled conviction that no ordi- 
nance involving any major phase of the traction 
question should become effective until after a pop- 
ular referendum, Section 3 of the Public Owner- 
ship Act of 1913 (Gahill's Illinois Revised Statutes, 
chapter 111-A) provides: 

"No city shall proceed to acquire or construct 
any public utility under the provisions of this 
Act until an ordinance of the city council pro- 
viding therefor has been duly passed and sub- 
mitted to the electors of such city and approved 
by a majority of those voting thereon." 

It seems to me highly desirable that there should 
be a definite expression of popular approval to a 
plan for subway construction in the central busi- 
ness district before such an extensive and important 
project should be undertaken. The procedure I am 
suggesting will make it possible for the electorate 
to determine promptly whether it favors the im- 
mediate construction of the only kind of a subway 
the City is at present financially able to build. 

Third: Judicial Confirmation of Special 
Assessment Proceedings. 

If you conclude to finance subway construction 
in part by special assessment, as soon as subway 
plans and specifications are prepared it will be 
necessary to pass the necessary special assessment 
ordinance and after a favorable referendum seek 
judicial confirmation of the assessment. Undoubt- 
edly objections will be filed to such confirmation. 
We are particularly indebted to the Citizens' Sub- 
way Advisory Commission's report for its thought- 
ful and very practical consideration of this im- 
portant phase of the question. That report sug- 
gests (pp. 363-371) a very practical method by 
which the objections of the property owners might 
be overcome and the delays usually incident to 
special assessment proceedings greatly minimized. 

I am advised by the Corporation Counsel that 
coincident with the filing of the petition for con- 
firmation of the assessment and before the begin- 
ning of the trial on legal objections it will be neces- 
sary that your Honorable Body pass a collateral 
ordinance showing definitely the use to which the 
proposed subway is to be put. Inasmuch as the 
determination of the question of the use to be made 
of subways is an essential part of any general trac- 
tion settlement it can, I think, be safely assumed 
that by the time the City is ready to file its peti- 
tion for confirmation definite provisions will have 



been made for the use of the subway proposed, 
either by the present surface and elevated com- 
panies, or otherwise, and these provisions can be 
incorporated in a collateral ordinance and the ap- 
proval on referendum of such a general traction 
settlement would necessarily include a popular ap- 
proval of the proposed arrangement for the use of 
subways. Failing to reach an agreement for the 
use of subways in connection with a general trac- 
tion settlement, two possible uses of the subway to 
be constructed suggest themselves, either (a) opera- 
tion therein by the City of subway cars or trains 
under an arrangement with the existing surface or 
elevated lines, or either of them, for an interchange 
of passengers through transfers, or (b) operation 
therein of the surface cars of the present surface 
lines companies or their successors or assigns and 
the trains of the Chicago Rapid Transit Company 
or its successors or assigns under a lease in accord- 
ance with present law from the City to such com- 
panies providing for a reasonable rental which will 
not impose so great a financial burden as to neces- 
sitate a raise in rates of fare. In this connection 
I have been furnished with the Corporation Coun- 
sel's opinion to the effect that inasmuch as the 
operation of the surface and elevated lines after 
the expiration of their present franchises will nec- 
essarily be by these same companies or their suc- 
cessors or assigns (by purchase or otherwise) con- 
tracts made with the present companies and their 
successors or assigns will be binding during the 
terms of such contracts upon such successors or 
assigns, whoever they may be. 

In view of the foregoing I respectfully recom- 
mend: 

First: That your Honorable Body immediately 
refer this communication to your Local Transporta- 
tion Committee and that that Committee immediate- 
ly consider and if possible determine upon the type 
and location of subways which, when constructed, 
can be efficiently co-ordinated with the existing 
elevated and surface lines or, should it be impos- 
sible to arrive at an agreement with the companies, 
form the basis of an independent transportation 
system to be operated either by the City of Chicago 
or some other lessee that it may designate. 

Second: That, having considered and determined 
upon the first point, your Local Transportation 
Committee authorize and direct the immediate prep- 
aration of complete plans and specifications for the 
construction of such subways, the cost of preparing 
such plans and specifications to be paid for out 
of appropriations to be made from the Traction 
Fund. Such engineers as you may employ should 
develop their plans and specifications in close co- 
operation with the technical engineers of the Board 
of Local Improvements so that such plans and spe- 
cifications will meet the technical requirements of 
special assessment law and procedure and be cap- 
able of inclusion in a tentative draft of a special 
assessment ordinance. 

Third : That at the earliest possible moment your. 
Local Transportation Committee report such a draft 
of ordinance to your Honorable Body for consider- 
ation and if the same meets with your approval 
that it be referred to the Board of Local Improve- 
ments for consideration and action pursuant to legal 
requirements. 

Fourth : That when the ordinance, or such modi- 
fication thereof as may be determined by the Board 
of Local Improvements, shall be recommended to 
the City Council, that it be immediately considered 
by your Honorable Body and, if passed, submitted 



Aovembor 3, 19-G.

to a referendum at a general or special election 
called for that purpose, the date of which ?hall be 
designated by your Honorable Body,. 

Fifth: That if said ordinance is approved on 
referendum, the use to be made of such subway be 
determined upon and made the subject of a colla- 
teral ordinance to be passed by your Honorable 
Body, that a petition for confirmation of such spe- 
cial' assessment be immediately filed in a court of 
competent jurisdiction and the procedure suggested 
in the Subway Advisory Commission's report for 
overcoming or minimizing the delays incident to 
confirmation be adopted. 

Respectfully submitted,

Annual Review of the Activities of the Mayor and the 
Executive Departments. 

The Mayor submitted the following special message, 
which was ordered published and placed on file: 

Office of the Mayor,] 
Chicago, November 3, 1926.]' 

To the Honorable, the City Council of the City of 

Chicago: 

Gentlemen — Section 12, Article II of "An Act to 
provide for the incorporation of cities and villages", 
requires that the Mayor shall annually, and from 
time to time, give the Council information relative 
to the affairs of the City, and recommend for their 
consideration such measures as he may deem ex- • 
pedient. 

Accordingly I submit herewith a report of the 
activities and operations of the various depart- 
ments of our municipality for the past twelve 
months ended September 30, 1926. 

In no one year in the City's history has there 
been as much progressive legislation enacted by 
your honorable body, or more constructive work 
performed by the various departments of the City 
government. This could not have been accom- 
plished but for the splendid co-operation and co- 
ordination which exists between the legislative and 
executive branches of our local government. 

Local Transportation and Subumys. 

During the last year your Local Transportation 
Committee has given very earnest and diligent con- 
sideration to the various phases of our local transit 
problem. 

While there was some difficulty at first in bring- 
ing all of the different traction interests into 
negotiation with your Local Transportation Com- 
mittee, these negotiations seem now to be progress- 
ing rapidly and with every indication of good faith, 
and, although a concrete proposition for a settle- 
ment has not yet been evolved, I believe real and 
substantial progress is being made. 

More recently a general outline of the proposal 
lor a twenty-year contract-franchise was submitted 
to your Local Transportation Comimittee and is re- 
ceiving studious consideration at the hands of this 
Committee. 

With a realization on the part of all of us that 
the- Surface Line franchises expire February 1, 
1927, it is unnecessary for me to urge the con- 
tinuance of the present diligent effort being 



directed toward a prompt solution of this vital 
question. The problem is essentially a legislative 
one for the determination of your honorable body. 
The Corporation Counsel and other administrative 
odicials, whom you have asked to assist you, have 
given and will continue to give all possible co- 
operation and assistance. 

I am transmitting to your honorable body today 
a separate communication relative to the con- 
struction of subways, to which I invite your par- 
ticular consideration. 

River Straightening and Railway Terminals. 

The outstanding achievement of the past year is 
the passage and acceptance of an ordinance passed 
by your honorable body on July 8, 1926, providing 
for the straightening of the South Branch of the 
Chicago River between Polk and 18th streets. The 
obstacles to the realization of this improvement 
seemed almost insurmountable. Obtaining neces- 
sary Federal legislation and departmental authority, 
arrangements with the numerous railroads having 
facilities on the present channel for compensatory 
facilities on the proposed channel, consents of 
railroads owning the property desired for the new 
channel to the sale or modification of the boundary 
lines of such properties, adjustments of property 
values, provisions for financing — these preceded the 
passage of the ordinance. The consents of the 
Division of Waterways of the State Department of 
Purchases and Construction and The Sanitary Dis- 
trict, Federal approval of bridge clearances over 
the proposed new_ channel and unconditional ac- 
ceptance of the ordinance by the various railroads 
involved followed the passage of the ordinance. 
These obstacles were only overcome by the diligent 
and conscientious efforts of your Committee on 
Railway Terminals, its engineer and the. Law De- 
partment, guided and aided by a group of dis- 
tinguished Chicagoans who, in this connection, ren- 
dered gratuitously^ a most conspicuous and public 
service. 

The last barriers removed, a formal and agreed 
condemnation proceeding will immediately be filed 
and work of construction proceeded with within 
the next thirty days. 

Completion of Wacker Drive Improvement. 

The two-level Wacker drive (old South Water 
street) improvement, extending from Michigan ave- 
nue to Market and continuing on Market street to 
Washington boulevard was formally dedicated on 
October 20th. The drive is now open for travel 
on both levels throughout its entire length and is 
approxinaately 95% completed. It will be com- 
. pleted in all of its details by December 1st. The 
completion of this great project is a source of 
particular gratification. The physical work of the 
improvement was actually started October 2, 1924, 
and has been completed six months ahead of the 
estimated construction time of thirty months and 
at $500,000.00 less than the estimated cost. The 
utility of the improvement is manifest. It furnishes 
a by-pass arownd the congested business district 
for both commercial and pleasure vehicles, aad 
another connecting link between the two gi'eat 
North and West Side park systems. The improve- 
ment has changed our unsightly and low valued 
south side river frontage into one of the 'finest 
thoroughfares in the world, offering building sites 
for modern office buildings, theaters and other 
structures of great utility and beauty. The largely 
increased property values, not only on the drive 
itself but on the adjacent stree'ts, resulting from

this improvement have not only justified the special 
assessment for its partial cost, but will be re- 
flected in a corresponding increase in general tax- 
able values. 

Major Street Widening Projects. 

Notable progress has been made in a great num- 
ber of major street widening projects. These are 
particularly treated in the report of the Board of 
Local Improvements. Specifically, I desire to 
emphasize the fact that these necessary improve- 
nuMils (() meet the demands of constantly increasing 
automotive traffic are being carried out and pro- 
jeclcd, not alone for the central business district, 
but for every part of Chicago. Ashland avenue, 
Western avenue and Robey street practically for 
their entire length within the City limits, Halsted 
street from Yincennes avenue to Soul h City limits, 
Milwaukee avenue from Edmunds street to North- 
westerly City limits, 95th street from State street 
to Western avenue, Peterson avenue from Cald- 
well Reserve to Ridge avenue, and many others 
may be mentioned to indicate the city-wide char- 
acter of these great improvements. 

LaSalle Street Bridge. 

It is particularly gratifying to report (he fact 
that the new LaSalle Street Bridge is actually 
under consi ruction. This work is being accelerated 
in every possible way in order to advance the esti- 
mated time of completion, February 1, 1928. The 
completion of the bridge, to be followed by the 
widening of LaSalle street from the Central Busi- 
ness District to Lincoln Park, will mark another 
step in the realization of the Chicago Plan for the 
City Beautiful. 

Lake Calumet Harbor. 

On June 3, 1925, your honorable body passed an 
ordinance for the improvement and development 
of Lake Calumet as an industrial harbor. Because 
this ordinance involved a transfer of harbor lands 
to the Nickel Plate Railroad in consideration for 
the agreement of that railroad to provide $600,- 
000.00 for the building of the initial unit of the 
so-called Van Vlissingen plan for the development 
of this harbor, the approval of the State Depart- 
ment of Purchases and Construction was required 
to make it effective. This department of the State 
government has definitely refused to issue such 
permit, and, therefore, the improvement and de- 
velopment projected under that ordinance cannot 
go forward. The improvement and development of 
Lake Calumet, either as an industrial or com- 
mercial harbor, or both, is of vital importance to 
the Calumet region, and I respectfully urge your 
honorable body to take up this question for imme- 
diate consideration. 

Track Elevation. 

The program of progressive track elevation 
initiated by your honorable body three years ago 
has been continued. A detailed statement of such 
progress will be found in the report of the De- 
partment of Public Works. This work should be 
, diligently pressed until every railroad grade cross- 
ing in Chicago shall have been eliminated. 

Electrification of Railicays and Smoke Abatement. 

Your honorable body, through a special com- 
mittee, has taken up in real earnest the bringing 
about of the elimination of locomotive smoke by 
inducing or compelling the operation within the 
limits of the City of Chicago of electrically pro- 
pelled or non-smoke producing equipment. Un- 
doubtedly this movement has been hastened by a 



demonstration of the benefits of this more modern 
operation in the electrification of the Illinois Cen- 
tral suburban service. The problem is a difficult 
one, necessarily involving large initial capital ex- 
penditures by the railroads, but a continuous effort 
should be made to commit all of the railroads 
entering Chicago to some reasonable program of 
definite yearly progress toward a future date when 
smoke producing locomotives will be entirely elimi- 
nat cd. 

The smoke producing locomotive is but a part 
of the larger problem of smoke abatement. I have 
previously addressed your honorable body on the 
deleterious effects of smokt3 on the public health, 
and the actual economic loss resulting from smoke 
pollution. The Department of Health, under my 
direction, is bending every effort to abate this evil. 
I would urge upon your honorable body that 
through your Committee on Public Health you give 
during the coming year a special consideration to 
additional plans and measures to more effectively 
combat and eradicate this preventable nuisance. 

Movement to Extend Public Recreational Facilities. 

On April 27, 1925, I submitted to your honorable 
body a communication in which I recommended the 
appointment of one hundred representative citizens 
of Chicago, including municipal officials of the City 
of Chicago, members of the Forest Preserve Com- 
mission and the several Park Commissions, to con- 
stitute the Chicago Recreation Commission, the 
function of which would be to study conditions, 
devise plans and make recommendations looking 
toward the widest possible development of whole- 
some recreation and the most interesting and best 
use of the leisure time of the children and adults 
of all classes in the community. 

Your Commitfee on City Planning, Parks and 
Playgrounds recommended, and your honorable 
body on March 18, 1926, unanimously passed a 
resolution empowering the Mayor to appoint such a 
Commission. That Commission was appointed, has 
had several meetings, and has so far progressed in 
its work to indicate that much good will result to 
our City from the serious and well directed activi- 
ties of this splendid group of disinterested men 
and women. 

Citizen Co-operation. 

It has been a source of intense pride to me, as I 
know it must be to the members of your honorable 
body, that both the legislative and administrative 
branches of the City government have so far en- 
joyed the confidence of the public that we have 
been so generously assisted by public-spirited citi- 
zens and organizations in solving some of our 
more important municipal problems. I have already 
referred to the splendid service- of the Citizens' 
Committee on River Straightening. I want also to 
especially commend the fine public spirit of the 
Chicago Association of Commerce in making and 
presenting to the Council its Metropolitan Traffic 
Survey and suggestion for the consideration of the 
Council of a scientifically prepared code of traffic 
regulation; the Commercial Club of Chicago for 
undertaking, at its own expense, a study and sur- 
vey of our waterway and harbor facilities, and the 
Citizens' Subway Advisory Commission for their 
valuable study of the traction problem with par- 
ticular reference to .subway construction. 

Chicago Centennial. 

On December 9, 1925, I transmitted to your 
honorable body communications received by me 



November 3, 192G. 



COMMUNICATIONS, ETC. 



4535 



from Mr. Charles H. Wacker, Chairman of the 
Chicago Plan Commission, and Dr. Otto L. Schmidt, 
President of the Chicago Historical Society, direct- 
ing attention to the fact that in 1033 Cliicago 
^^ould attain its 100th anniversary as an organized 
numicipality and suggesting that serious consider- 
ation be given to the planning of a celebration 
suitably commemorative of Chicago's first century 
of unparalleled municipal growth and progress. I 
suggested in that communication that these com- 
munications be referred to your Committee on 
City Planning, Parks and Athletics, with the recom- 
mendation that a Commission of representative 
citizens be appointed to consider and formulate 
plans for the celebration of this Centennial. 

On March 18, 1926, your honorable body on the 
recommendation of the Committee on City Planning, 
Parks and Athletics, passed a resolution empower- 
ing me as Mayor to appoint a Commission of 200 
representative citizens of the City of Chicago, which 
Commission working in harmony with the City 
government and all business and civic organizations 
interested in Chicago's development should be 
authorized to proceed with the task of laying the 
foundations for a celebration of the 100th anni- 
versary of Chicago which would be wholly ex- 
pressive of our City's ideals. 

Such a Commission was appointed on March 18, 
1926. That Commission met and a temporary 
organization was effected at which the Mayor was 
authorized to select an Executive Committee. This 
Executive Committee w-as appointed and has held 
several meetings. A temporary organization has 
been effected and general plans are being formu- 
lated for submission to the Centennial Commission. 

T cannot commend too highly the whole hearted 
support which this project has received from the 
business and civic agencies of Chicago, and the 
spirit of self sacrificing service manifested by the 
members of the Centennial Commission, whom it 
was my privilege to appoint, augurs well for the 
success and permanent value of this proposed cele- 
bration. 

Board of Education. 

I deem it proper to make some reference in this 
message to a public activity which has been closely 
identified with the present administration and 
which I have not heretofore made mention of in 
my messages because I have been waiting to see to 
what extent appointments which I have made to 
the school board have afi'ected school conditions. 

In May, 1923, I appointed, with the concurrence 
of your honorable body, eight members of the 
school board (a working majority), who took over 
school affairs at a time when the public had com- 
pletely lost confidence in the school system by 
reason of the constant strife, numerous scandals, 
and chaotic condition of school affairs. The build- 
ing of new schools was at a standstill. The teach- 
ing methods seemed to be going backwards. The 
teachers and school officials apparently were not 
co-operating with each other in the public interest. 
I endeavored to make appointment of persons who 
would undertake to bring order out of chaos, pro- 
mote friendly feeling and advance the interests of 
the schools. 

In the period beginning with April. 1923, and up 
to the present time, the Board of Education has, 
through its Business Department, prepared plans 
and specifications, awarded contracts and completed 
the construction of 51 school buildings, all of 
which are now occupied to full capacity. 



In addition to the above number of school build- 
ings listed as completed, the Board of Education 
has now under construction 17 additional new 
school buildings, all of which are scheduled to be 
completed and ready for occupancy on or before 
April 1, 1927, this making a total of 68 buildings 
constructed and completed, or in the process of 
completion between the periods of April, 1923, and 
the present date. In order to achieve this result 
the average time consumed in the erection of school 
buildings was cut in half and the costs were 
markedly reduced. 

These new schools have provided for 1180 new 
class rooms, 59 assembly halls and 64 gymnasiums, 
besides all of the special rooms required in a 
modern school building, such as shops, laboratories, 
lunch rooms, etc., with a total added seating 
capacity of 59,156 seats. 

The total expenditure for the construction and 
equipment of the above buildings was $45,603,- 
550.00. 

In addition, this board has adopted a definite 
program looking toward the future development of 
the schools and school system by purchase through 
condemnation proceedings of large tracts of de- 
sirable property in growing communities, where 
buildings are to be erected as rapidly as need for 
them arises. To that end, there are now approxi- 
mately forty sites under condemnation and the 
building program for 1927 contemplates the open- 
ing of at least thirty-two new buildings on sites 
already acquired or to be acquired. 

The schools have been rendered more safe by 
the installation of over one-half million dollars 
worth of safety appliances in the old schools and 
the adoption of every possible safety serving device 
in the plans for the new ones. 

The types of school buildings and the equipment 
furnished for them have been so standardized that 
a great saving has been made to the taxpayer. The 
adoption of a comprehensive budget system has 
been a great factor also in making economy pos- 
sible. 

Some idea of the tremendous responsibility and 
work entailed in the management of the public 
schools, and the importance of proper control, may 
be seen from the one fact that there are in at- 
tendance now approximately 505,000 pupils whose 
work is supervised by 12,282 educational employes, 
teachers and principals. 

To supplement the revenue derived through the 
usual channels for the operation of these schools, 
the board established a tax division under the 
direction of the attorney of the board, which was 
the effective means of securing during the year 
1925, about one-quarter million dollars from in- 
creased property valuations. The Board is now co- 
operating with the City Council in an effort to 
secure a more equitable valuation of property and 
equalization of the tax burden. It was also instru- 
mental in bringing about the passage of the law 
securing to the schools the interest on school funds 
in the hands of the County Treasurer with the 
result that $100,000.00 was added to the school funds 
during the year 1925, and over $200,000.00 will be 
added in the year 1926. 

In the year 1925 occurred the decennial appraise- 
ment of lands of the school system, located prin- 
cipally in the block bounded by Madison, Monroe, 
State and Dearborn streets, held under long term 
leases. These leases provide for the payment of 



4536 



JOURNAL— CITY COUNCIL. 



November 3, 1926. 



rent on the basis of 6% of the value of the land. 
For two decades the schools have suffered serious 
loss in revenue because of a construction placed 
upon the revaluation clause in the leases. The 
1925 appraisers found that the various parcels had 
increased in value 1o such an extent that the 
schools will receive additional revenue of approxi- 
mately a quarter of a million dollars annually. 

While the board was at wor'k on procuring ade- 
quale school houses and school equipment for the 
pupils, it did not neglect the actual work of the 
school room. A comprehensive survey to the end 
that the entire system of teaching shall be revised 
for (he betterment of the pupils is now being made. 
While this revision is going on, the improvement 
in general methods, due to more adequate super- 
vision and the betterment of teaching morale, has 
produced greater efficiency in teaching. One result 
of this has been that the number of failures in the 
elementary schools has been decreased 20% during 
the past year. When it is considered that pupils 
who fail must review the subject, it is obvious 
that this not only results in a saving of time to 
the pupils but a saving of money to the taxj- 
payers. 

Other improvements worthy of mention are the 
closer co-operation with the Association of Com- 
merce in civic service campaigns, with the police 
and fire departments in safety campaigns and fire 
drills, with the postal authorities in improving 
mail service, and with the City authorities in the 
reduction of smoke nuisances by the installation 
of modern smoke consuming devices in all schools. 

Department of Public Works. 

Lake Front Improvement. 

The rate of progress being made by the South 
Park Commissioners and the Illinois Central Rail- 
road, by virtue of the so-called Lake Front Ordi- 
nance is especially noticeable this year. 

The date set for the electrification of this railroad 
witnessed the operation of electric trains on regu- 
lar main line suburban service July 21, 1926. A 
few days later, trains were operating under elec- 
trical power on both the Blue Island and South 
Chicago Branches. A high speed schedule with a 
reduction in running time of ten to thirty per cent, 
was put in effect August 29th. All of the old cars 
and locomotives have been displaced by comfortable 
and well-lighted equipment of the latest design. 
Practically all of the suburban stations have been 
rebuilt or remodeled to accommodate trains of ten 
car lengths and wherever possible additional exits 
to adjacent streets have been provided for the con- 
venience of the passengers. A commodious tempor- 
ary station has been built at Randolph street for 
use during the building of a permanent terminal at 
this location, the construction of which is now 
under way. An ordinance providing for certain 
changes in the permanent station is now before your 
Honorable Body. The recommendations therein 
made were suggested by this office and, if accepted 
by the City Council, will prove more advantageous 
to the City than the terms imposed under the ordi- 
nace of July 21, 1919. 

The development of the Lake Front Park be- 
tween Randolph and 51st streets has been con- 
tinued. The viaduct at 31st street has been completed 
and the viaducts at Jackson boulevard, Van Buren 
street, Harrison street and at Seventh street, are in 
various stages of construction. The 22nd street 
connection to the 23rd street-South Park avenue 



viaduct was completed by the Illinois Central Rail- 
road and turned over to the City. Temporary side--- 
walks were installed by the Department of Public 
Works and temporary illumination placed by the 
Department of Electricity. The permanent work 
will be carried out under proceedings of the Board 
of Local Improvements. 

The Buckingham Memorial at Congress street is 
about 75% complete. The construction of drives 
and park improvements are in progress east of the 
Illinois Central Railroad between Randolph street 
and 39th street. 

Chicago Union Station. 

The work imposed on the Union Station Company 
under their ordinance of March 23, 1914, has been 
practically completed. 

All of the concrete track slabs, new track, station 
platforms, and interlocking apparatus are finished. 
Negotiations, which are under way to repave Canal 
street between Madison street and Lake street with- 
out expense to the City, will without doubt convert 
Canal street into an important connecting link be- 
tween Wacker drive and Roosevelt road. 

Adams street viaduct was finished early this 
spring and a new pavement installed on Adams 
street between the river and Clinton street. A new 
pavement was also installed on Canal street between 
Adams and Monroe streets. 

Precast concrete railing was installed on the 
south side of Jackson boulevard viaduct, on Adams 
street viaduct, and on the east side of Canal street 
between Adams and Monroe streets and also from 
Harrison street to the power house. 

Track Elevation and Railroad Subways. 

The businesslike policy and earnest effort of the 
Commissioner of Public Works concerning the ele- 
vation of railroad tracks, and the splendid co-opera- 
tion of your Committee on Track Elevation has 
resulted in very satisfactory physical progress dur- 
ing the current year. 

One original and three amendatory ordinances 
were passed this year prior to the summer vaca- 
tion of your Honorable Body. 

An original ordinance, passed on June 30, 1926, 
provided for the relocation of the tracks of the 
Baltimore & Ohio Chicago Terminal road between 
79tb and Leavitt streets and 83rd and Rockwell 
streets, with subways over Western avenue at 82nd 
street and over 83rd street at Rockwell street. This 
work is well under way and the subway in Western 
avenue will be completed this season, at least in 
so far as street conditions are concerned. When 
these new tracks are completed and open to railroad 
traffic the tracks of the company which now cross 
Western avenue at grade south of 75th street will 
be removed. The result of such removal will be 
most beneficial because it will permit of the con-

Indiana Companies which will be less than one- 
third the ^ length of the subway which would be 
required if the Baltimore & Ohio Chicago Terminal 
tracks were to be continued in their present lo- 
cation. 

An amendatory ordinance passed on July 22, 1926, 
applied to the Chicago and Western Indiana tracks 
in the Kensington district. The work of elevation 
between State street and the Illinois Central right 
of way near Calumet avenue and 119th street is well

under way and subways are in course of construc- 
tion in Michigan avenue near 116th street, in 116th 
street between Michigan avenue and Indiana avenue, 
in Indiana avenue south of 116th street, and in 
Prairie avenue south of 116th street. 

Another amendatory ordinance passed June 30, 
1926, applied to the Pullman Railroad Company and 
as a consequence of the passage of this ordinance 
a subway is now in course of construction in 95th 
street about one thousand feet westi of Stony Island 
avenue and will be completed this season. 

The third amendatory ordinance related to the 
tracks of the Pan Handle and the Baltimore & Ohio 
Chicago Terminal between 39th street and Garfield 
boulevard and to the tracks of the Indiana Harbor 
Belt, the Chicago River & Indiana, and the Grand 
Trunk Western in 49th street between Robey street 
and Western avenue. 

The Pan Handle and the Baltimore & Ohio Chi- 
cago Terminal Companies are now at work north 
and south of 5ist street, and the work of actual 
subway construction will begin at 51st street be- 
fore the middle of November. 

As the result of an agreement between the Com- 
missioner of Public Works and the receivers for 
the Chicago, Milwaukee & St. Paul Railway Com- 
pany, the terms of which were approved by the 
United States District Court, the St. Paul Company 
and the Chicago & North Western are now working 
intensively in the Mayfair district and constructing 
subways in Montrose avenue, in Sunnyside avenue, 
and in Wilson avenue near Cicero avenue. This 
work will greatly benefit the people of that districi 
and will eliminate a most dangerous condition. 

The Grand Trunk Western, the Chicago River & 
Indiana, and the Indiana Harbor Belt Companies are 
constructing a subway at Kedzie avenue and 49th 
street, formerly one of the most dangerous grade 
crossings in Chicago, and are exerting the most 
strenuous efforts to complete such subway so that 
traffic may again use Kedzie avenue before winter 
weather sets in. 

The subway under the Chicago Northwestern 
Railway at Cortland street which is being con- 
structed as a part of the Ashland avenue widening 
project at a cost of $750,000 is about 90% complete 
and will be opened to the public early next spring. 

The subway under the Chicago Northwestern 
Railway at Peterson avenue which is necessitated 
by the widening of this street, is under construc- 
tion. 

The subways under the Illiiiois Central Railroad 
at 130th street and at Indiana avenue, completed 
late in 1925, removed the last grade crossing of this 
railroad on its main line between Chicago and Mo- 
nee, Illinois, a distance of 35 miles. 

Designs have been checked and approved for a 
subway under the Northwestern Railway at Logan 
boulevard in connection with the widening of West- 
ern avenue. The extension of the subway at Kost- 
ner avenue under the Chicago, Burlington and 
Quincy Railroad was completed early in January, 
19^6. 

In this connection mention may also properly be 
made of the fact that the Chicago Rapid Transit 
Company has commenced the removal of elevated 
columns obstructing street intersections on Wa- 
bash avenue. This is in accordance with the terms 



of an ordinance passed July 22, 1925, and accepted 
by the company. 

Bureau of Engineering. 

Contracts were entered into amounting to $4,- 
985,564.54, indicating in part the volume of work 
carried on in the bureau. 

Three hundred and twenty-seven billion gallons 
of water were pumped, as compared with three 
hundred and twenty-two billion gallons for 1925. 
The maximum quantity of water pumped in one 
day was one billion and twenty-three million gal- 
lons on July 7th, 1926, as compared with 985,000,- 
OOO gallons on June 5, 1925. The head pumped 
against was 120.O as compared with 119.7 last year. 

Studies and plans are under way for work in- 
cidental to the straightening of the Chicago River, 
including the Roosevelt Road and Taylor Street 
Bridges. 

Plans are in preparation for a modern bascule 
bridge at Clark street and at 106th street, and for the 
viaduct of the north approach to the LaSalle Street 
Bridge. 

Plans were completed for widening the North 
Kedzie Avenue Bridge. 

Studies were made for widening of the North 
Kimball Avenue Bridge and for a bridge over the 
Chicago River at Wabash avenue. 

Construction work was completed on Rush street 
between North Water street and the river, and the 
widening of North Crawford Avenue Bridge, Roose- 
velt Road Viaduct, South California Avenue Bridge, 
and 134th Street Bridge. 

The substructure of the lOOth Street Bridge was 
completed and the erection of the superstructure is 
well under way. 

Construction of the east substructure and of the 
west superstructure of the Adams Street Bridge is 
now under way. 

Construction of the substructure of the LaSalle 
Street Bridge is progressing satisfactorily. 

The usual work on repairs and maintenance of 
bridges was carried on. 

Plans have been completed for the Western Ave- 
nue Pumping Station; for a boiler, stoker and pump 
at the Stony Island Avenue Sewage Pumping Sta- 
tion; for a new crib to be located near the Carter- 
Harrison crib, and for the Central Police Station 
and Courts Building. 

Work progressed steadily on the new Chicago 
Avenue Tunnel, part of which is 16 feet in di- 
ameter — the largest tunnel so far constructed by the 
City. The work completed during the year con- 
sisted of the mining of 1,100 feet of 16-foot tunnel 
and 5,300 feet of 13-foot tunnel. 

The foundations for the main building of the 
new Western Avenue Pumping Station were com- 
pleted, including completion of suction tunnels. The 
stone masonry of the main buildings is nearly com- 
pleted, the boilers and stokers are erected, and the 
work has started on the installation of pumping 
equipment and discharge piping. 

The pumping facilities at the Central Park Ave- 
nue Pumping Station were greatly improved by the 
installation of a 60-million gallon per day turbine 
driven centrifugal pump. 

Work was started on the construction of an 8-

foot tunnel in rock under the Calumet River at In- 
diana avenue. 

Three hundred sixty-l'our thousand two hundred 
feet of water mains of all sizes from ^iS inches to 
six inches in diameter were laid, and 1,800 hy- 
drants and 950 valves were set. 

Metering of all service was begun in February, 
1926, and approximately 9,000 meters have been 
set to date. 

Under the provisions of the new metering ordi- 
nance 400,000 meters are to be installed in a period 
of ten years. Approximately 90% of these will be 
%-inch meters. Under keen competitive bidding 
these meters are being furnished to the City at 
$6.32 per meter. Similar meters under the pre- 
ceding administration cost the City $9.45 each. The 
total cost of meter installation at the present unit 
price of $6.32 covering the entire ten years will be 
$2,528,000— -an expenditure of approximately $250,- 
000.00 per year. The largest number of meters have 
been set in the southeastern part of Chicago. Un- 
derground leakage surveys in the district metered, 
from Hegewisch on the south to about 83rd street 
on the north and from Yates avenue to the Indiana 
State line, indicated 700-000 gallons of water lost 
daily through underground leakage, of which 250,- 
000 gallons have been stopped. The effect of meter- 
ing this district, together with stoppage of under- 
ground leakage, has resulted in pressures being ma- 
terially increased. 

The quantity of water flowing into the district 
has decreased approximately 8,000,000 gallons per 
day. This quantity of water now becomes avail- 
able for use by other users adjacent to the district 
metered and surveyed. 

A total of 10,032 meters have been replaced, 
9,567 repaired in the shop, and 9,810 repaired on 
the premises. Standard tests and inspections were 
made on all material used in construction work. 

A strict watch has been kept on the agencies 
tending to affect the sanitary quality of the water. 
Over 25,000 samples were analyzed for the bureau 
by the Health Department. The public water supply 
has at all times met the strictest standards for 
bacterial purity, although during periods of storm 
■unpleasant turbidity has occurred. A program for 
an experimental filter plant has been prepared, and 
experimental work will be carried out next year. 
The average quantity of chlorine used for disin- 
fecting the water supply during the year was 3.3 
pounds per million gallons. 

Bureau of Water. 

The total collections in the Bureau of Water from 
October 1, 1925, to September 30', 1926, will ap- 
proximate $11,300,000.00. This will be an increase 
over the same period last year of approximately 
$1,100,000.00. 

During the same period the activities of the Field 
Division are indicated by the following statistics : 

Field assessors' inspections 265,000 

Rate takers' readings 410^000 

Plumbing inspectors' visits 4,500 

Examinations by meter and plumbing ex- 
aminers 2,650 

Visits by shut-off men to enforce pay- 
ment of delinquent water rates 40,600 

The percentage of meter installations is very 
much greater duirng the year just finished as com- 



pared with previous years, owing to the revised 
meter installation ordinance. 

Bureau of Parks, Playgrounds and Bathing Beaches. 

Seventy small parks, triangles, squares, breathing 
places and beauty spots were maintained during the 
year. Nine comfort stations were kept open, and 
four large wading pools provided bathing facilities 
for children who would be otherwise far removed 
from such conveniences. Fifty tennis courts, a 
dozen baseball fields and three football fields were 
used intensively. 

In Austin Community Center over eight hundred 
permits were issued for the use of the club rocms 
and assembly halls. 

In Austin Park 65,000 boys and 40',000 girls used 
the wading pool during the summer. 

Eighty-five thousand bedding plants and 1,800 
potted plants were used in beautifying our parks, 
playgrounds and bathing beaches. Four thousand 
five hundred trees and shrubs were taken from the 
Municipal Nursery and planted in the parks, play- 
grounds and athletic fields. 

At the Municipal Nursery 5,000 seedling elms and 
honey locusts were planted, and 25,000 cuttings 
made of ornamental shrubs. 18,000 rooted cuttings 
were transplanted, and 8,000 shrubs and trees dug 
and delivered to the municipal parks. Four thou- 
sand five hundred elms were trimmed and 1,500 
five-year-old elms were thinned out and transplant- 
ed. 

In the Municipal Nursery many thousands of 
seedling trees are planted each year, and this policy 
of replanting the City's streets with ornamental 
shade trees will be enlarged upon each year, if 
additional funds are provided. 

The public comfort stations in the loop were 
patronized with a daily attendance of about 4,000 
men and 1,000' women. 

Playgrounds. . 

Fourteen playgrounds and eight athletic fields 
were in operation during the year, with a total at- 
tendance of 2,847,819. 

Three new playgrounds were built and opened 
during the year — one at 18th place near Loomi.:, 
street, on leased property; one on Wilson and Lawn- 
dale avenues, on City property; and one at 37th 
street and Rhodes avenue, on property purchased 
from the proceeds of the playground bond issue. 
Six more are now in process of construction and 
will be opened for use this fall at the following lo- 
cations : 

24th street and Trumbull avenue, 
33rd and Paulina streets, 
38th street and Prairie avenue. 
Hoyne avenue and Adams street, 
57th street and Racine avenue, 
72nd street and Calumet avenue. 

This remarkably full program is more than has 
been accomplished in a great number of years in 
the way of providing recreation facilities for the 
children in Chicago's more congested districts. 

In addition to the informal use and enjoyment of 
the facilities and play equipment, organized athletic 
activities were promoted. Athletic tests, ball games, 
.skating races, play festivals, celebrations and other 
forms of recreation were conducted in season. 

Seventy-five thousand men and boys and 34,000

girls and woinen used the playsround skating ponds 
in the winter time, and over 90,000' boys and 60,000 
girls participated in supervised miscellaneous 
games. 

One hundred and forty thousand children made 
use of the sand courts, and 20.000 children made 
use of the wading pools in the playgrounds. 

The playgrounds also took part in all of the com- 
petitive activities held by the Chicago Playground 
Council and, participated in many meets held by 
other athletic governing bodies, co-operating with 
the Boys' Week celebration and other festivity 
committees. 

Municipal Pier. 

The recreation section of the Municipal Pier had 
the largest and most successful season in its his- 
tory. The total estimated attendance was 3,220',000, 
and the attendance in the children's playground was 
74.000. There w^ere 46 periods of public dancing, 
15 band concerts, 31 performances of the Children's 
Civic Theatre, 10 radio artists' performances, 10 
community sings, and a large number of special 
events such as Boys' Achievement Week, West Park 
concerts, high school bands, etc. Seventy-nine pic- 
tures borrowed from the Chicago Art Institute and 
24 exhibition cases of subjects in natural his- 
tory from the Harris Extension of the Field Museum 
were on display throughout the season. The danc- 
ing and food concessions were operated more satis- 
factorily than ever before. A careful supervision 
w^as maintained over all foodstuffs and eatables sold. 

Bathing Beaches. 

The municipal bathing beaches were ofTicially 
closed on Labor Day, September 7th, after the most 
successful season ever had. The total attendance 
at the beaches and protected street ends was 3,027,- 
000, breaking all previous records. The receipts 
for the three beaches were $21,482.57. 

The big feature of the year of which we are justly 
proud is that, although there were 100 deaths by 
drowning in Cook County and vicinity, we again 
went through another season without the loss of a 
single life by drowning in any of the protected 
areas. Credit for this is due largely to our excellent 
corps of life guards, selected after the most rigid 
examinations, and to the splendid discipline main- 
tained among them throughout the season. 

Rivers and Harbors — General. 

The most important development was the merger 
of the Bureau of Municipal Pier with the Bureau 
of Rivers and Harbors, placing the Harbor Master 
in charge of the combined offices. This centralizes 
all the harbor activities under one head. 

There were 74 dock permits issued for the re- 
pairing and rebuilding of over two miles of dock, 
36 dredging permits covering 702 eight-hour days 
dredging, 11 towing permits covering 156 eight- 
'hour days of towing, and 74 special permits. Total 
fees collected for all these permits amounted to $4,- 
620.55. 

Approximately 100 "Dock Notices" to compel the 
repair or replacement of docks in bad condition and 
15 "Removal Notices" to compel the removal of 
various obstructions to navigation were served, with 
good results. 

Forty-seven bridges were operated, including the 
134th Street Bridge over the Calumet River, which 
was opened in December, 1925. Six persons were 



rescued from the waters of the river by our bridge 
tenders, who also recovered nine bodies during the 
year. ' 

A boundary line between Clarendon Beach prop- 
erty and Lincoln Park lands was established by an 
ordinance passed by the City Council July 8, 1926. 

The question of lengthening the "Bridge Closed" 
hours, made subject of a resolution passed by tho 
Council July 22, 1926, is now under discussion by 
otlicials of the City, the United States engineer's 
office, the various navigation interests and inter- 
ested civic bodies, and some alleviation of the in- 
convenience and annoyance caused the public by 
open bridge draws during the busy hours of the 
day is practically assured. 

Municipal Pier. 

One of the first acts of the Harbor Master upon 
taking over the pier in so far as concerns the com- 
mercial section thereof was to negotiate a lease 
with the Goodrich Transit Company for 120,000 
square feet of space for ten years at an annual rental 
of $42,000.00. Also by leasing to the Chicago and 
South Haven Steamship Company 14,000 square feet 
for five years at $4,800.00 per annum; all of the pas- 
senger steamship lines were removed from the Chi- 
cago River and centralized on the pier. 

To accomplish this it was necessary to move 
several of the pier tenant^ to that portion of the 
north shed, which up to this time was unoccupied 
and bringing in no revenue. For protection of the 
boats docking on this north side, a breakwater 
1,256 feet long was constructed at a total cost of 
$85,998.00, and the north basin was dredged to a 
project depth of 21 feet of water, 92,814 cubic yards 
of material being removed at a cost of $31,556.76. 

During the week of June 20th to 24th, the XXVIII 
International Eucharistic Congress utilized a portion 
of the exhibition space for displaying religious, art 
and church goods. The exhibition was a huge suc- 
cess, approximately 1,00'0,000 persons attending. 

The American Society for Steel Treating leased 
the entire exhibition space for a National Steel and 
Machine Tool Exposition held from September 20'th 
to 24th. The rental accruing to the City from this 
source was $9,420.20. 

One hundred forty-one wharfing permits were 
issued to 22 excursion boats running to Lincoln and 
Jackson Parks and the government pier. The rev- 
enue from these permits amounted to $5,105.75. 
Forty-eight steamships operated from the commer- 
cial section the past year carrying passengers, 
freight and motor vehicles, making a total of 1,825 
dockings. 

The revenue to the pier for the twelve months 
ending September 30, 1926, as compared with the 
same period for the preceding year is as follows: 

1925 1926 

Dockage and Warf age ...$ -6,562.19 $ 5,948.88 

Leases and Rents 96,553.83 108,847.40 

Refreshment Concessions. 45,169.57 40,924.94 

Dancing Concession 5,859.84 3,338.97 

Sale of Electric Current. 2,468.14 4,094.27 

Miscellaneous 14.75 

$156,613.57 $163,169.21 

Of the total area of the two freight sheds com- 
prising 468,000 square feet there is at present leased 
and rented 396,720 square feet, the gross yearly rev- 
enue from which will amount to $117,600.00', where- 



ir

as last year but 323,600 square feet were rented, 
the revenue totaling $90,803.82. The remainder of 
the revenue accuring from "Leases and Rents" was 
received from the intermittent use of the second 
level sheds for expositions, extra auto storage, etc. 

The expenditures for maintenance and operation 
of the pier for the past year was $107,937.86, as 
compared with $180,487.64 of the previous twelve 
months period. This decrease of $12,549.78 was 
caused by the fact that during the last three months 
of the year 1924 over $30,000.00 worth of repair 
work was done on the pier. 

Bureau of Waste Disposal. 

Garbage. 

Chicago is still disposing of garbage by reduc- 
tion, the one and only plant being located at 39th 
and Iron streets which compels the hauling from all 
parts of the city to this location. The plant oper- 
ates at a loss, due to low grease value and a low 
market price. The cost of collection and hauling 
is necessarily high, due to long hauls. 

The present zoning law is so drawn that a mod- 
ern type of incinerator or destructor cannot be lo- 
cated advantageously for the City's use, and we have 
temporarily abandoned the plan for building an in- 
cinerator this year. Chicago cannot adopt this 
method of waste disposal until legislation is enacted 
which will permit the construction and operation of 
destructors in a commercial district. 

The Municipal Reduction Plant received and dis- 
posed of 102,575 tons of raw garbage during the 
year ending September 30, 1926, as compared with 
103.511 tons for the preceding year, showing a de- 
crease of 936 tons. 

The production of garbage grease for the twelve 
months ending September 30th totaled 6,'006,540 
pounds, as compared with a total of 6,109,630 pounds 
for the previous twelve months. The production of 
garbage grease during the past year shows that the 
plant is still operating at its maximum production 
efficiency, as the average annual grease production 
during the past four years has been 6,000,000 
pounds. 

The revenue from the sale of by-products vouch- 
ered from October 1, 1925, to September 30, 1926, 
totaled $394,078.14, as compared with a total of 
$375,939.50 for the preceding year, showing an in- 
crease of $18,138.64. 

The net cost of operation of the reduction plant, 
including repairs and the disposal of rubbish, dur- 
ing the year ending September 30, 1926, was $321,- 
692.60, as compared with $327,100.51 for the pre- 
ceding year, showing a decrease of $5,407.91. This 
decrease has been accomplished by an increase in 
the amount of revenue due to increased production 
and increased prices, and notwithstanding salary 
and wage increases to all employes. 

During the past year major repairs and improve- 
ments have been made to the reduction plant at a 
cost of $40',000.00. These improvements, together 
with numerous repairs made by plant mechanics, 
have increased the value of the physical property 
of the reduction plant to the extent of approximately 
$60,000.00. 

Bureau of Streets. 
Street Cleaning. 

Rapidly increasing auto trafflo has forced the Bu- 
reau of Streets to change materially the methods 



of street cleaning. Where machine brooms were 
formerly effective and seemed to solve the problem 
they are practically of no use to day due to the 
parking of vehicles on the public streets. We arc 
now confronted with the problem of flushing more 
extensively and the more frequent use of the hand 
broom. 

The cost per 1,000 square yards for the removal 
of street dirt was 77c, or 4c per 1,000 square yards 
more than in 1925. 

Seven hundred eighty-seven million ninety-five 
thousand three hundred forty-five square yards of 
pavement were flushed by auto flushers requiring 
the use of 92,044 tanks of water. 

The total expense for this service was $66,982.92, 
approximately the same as the previous year. 

Ten million two hundred sixty thousand two hun- 
dred forty-three square yards of pavement were 
cleaned by auto pick-up sweepers. 

Removal of Garbage, Ashes and Refuse. 

From September 1, 1925, to September 1, 1926, 
102,216 tons of garbage were collected and delivered 
to the Reduction Plant at 39th and Iron streets, at 
a saving of 83 cents per ton over the previous year's 
price. 

Two million five hundred sixty-eight thousand 
five hundred six cubic yards of ashes were collected 
and hauled to dumps. Of this, 1,612,793 cubic 
yards (62 per cent) were hauled by trailers. Total 
cost of collection and haul, $2,680,347.59. Cost per 
cubic yard, $1.04. This is 9 cents per cubic yard 
cheaper than during 1925. 

Vehicle Tax. 

In the repair and maintenance of pavements the 
A^ehicle Tax Division has met with the most un- 
favorable weather conditions in years. In spite of 
delays and wet pavements, more asphalt repair work 
was done this year than last year by 105,000 square 
yards. 

Each year the mileage of pavement increases, and 
this season the Bureau of Streets had 2,450 miles 
of streets and 710 miles of alleys to maintain. 

The Vehicle Tax Appropriation for repair and 
maintenance for 1926 was $4,120,565.00. 

Permit Division. 

The number of permits issued from October 1, 
1925, to September 30, 1926, was 61,881, or 139 
more than during the preceding twelve months. 
These permits cover all openings made in the pub- 
lic streets and alleys by public utility companies, 
contractors and city departments. 

Sign Division. 

This branch of the service is rapidly increasing 
in the volume of work done, and at present is 
making detailed surveys and reports for the Mayor's 
Street Traffic Committee on "traffic counts" for 
"Stop and Go" installations, surveys of dangerous 
intersections for corrective treatment, speed checks, 
parking checks, etc. 

This division is working in co-operation with the 
Metropolitan Survey of the Association of Com- 
merce. Detailed surveys and counts were made at 
237 street intersections and 14 bridges. "No Park- 
ing" checks w-ere made in the Loop District and 
"Speed" checks made on many important traction 
streets.

Work is goin? forward on the installation of 
1,100 illuminated "Through Stroot" stop signalls, 
which program will bo completed in 1926. 

Detailed survey and train and street trafTic counts 
are being made at all steam railroad grade cross- 
ings. 

From June 1. 1924, to September 1, 1926, the fol- 
loNNing construction work has been accomplished: 

6,998 new street signs erected. 
5,332 street signs repaired (major repairs re- 
quiring matorialK 
4,553 street signs repaired (minor repairs re- 
quiring no material). 
967 school "Slow Down" signs erected. 
535 traflTie signs erected ("Heavy Traffic Pro- 
hibited", "Danger — Slow Down", "Keep to 
Right"), etc. 
133 traffic signs repaired or replaced. 
406 "No Parking" signs erected. 
51 "Zone of Quiet" signs erected. 
72 "Safety Zone" and "Keep to Right" signs 
erected for Department of Public Service. 
13 reflecting signals installed. 
206 gas flashing beacons installed. 

33 gas flashing curb signals installed. 
435 dangerous locations surveyed and reports 
and recommendations made. 

Bureau of Architecture. 

The activities of this Bureau, having to do with 
sundry construction work for the City during the 
year, was as follows : 

Fire Department — Construction work was re- 
sumed on the fire engine house being erected at 
2341-2343 South Wabash avenue. This building is 
a one-story or bungalow type, and typical in de- 
sign, lavout and construction to the fire engine 
house located at 3509-3511 Lowe avenue. The 
building will cost $47,500.00, and will be completed 
October 15, 1926. 

A two-story fire engine house was erected at 
1217 Lafayette street at the cost of $20,685.00, and 
turned over to the Fire Department for occupancy 
on July 1, 1926. 

Plans and specifications were prepared and con- 
tracts awarded in the amount of $30,607.00 for the 
construction of a truck house on the site located 
at 4002 Wilcox street, and the remodeling of the 
adjoining engine house; also in the amount of 
$28,030.00 for clearing the site and erecting a 
truck house at 1529 Belmont avenue. The con- 
tractors have been ordered to proceed with the two 
projects. 

Drawings and specifications were made and bids 
are now being received for the construction of a 
truck house at 10400 Vincennes avenue. The cost 
of this project is estimated at $28,000.00. 

Working drawings and specifications are being 
prepared for the construction of a truck house at 
23-25 South Laflin street and engine houses on the 
sites located at 6239 North California avenue and 
10615 Ewing avenue. The cost of the buildings 
will approximate $25,000.00 each. 

Preliminary sketches have been prepared for the 
construction of a combination fire engine and truck 
house at 34 East 114th street. Working drawings 
will be started as soon as the sketches are approved. 

Plans and specifications were prepared and bids 
are now being received for the construction of a 
tw^o-story electrical sub-station on the site located 



at the southeast corner of West 55th street and 
South Homan avenue. -The cost of the project, in- 
cluding brick fences, iron gates, concrete driveways, 
etc., is estimated at $50,500.00. 

Police Department — Contracts were awarded in 
the amount of $74,000.00 for the construction of a 
fjwo-story police station at 3513-3515 West 63rd 
street, and the building will be completed Novem- 
ber 1, 1926. The structure covers the area of 50 
feet by 124 feet. The design is modern with face 
brick front and stone trim, and the sections laid 
out for the boiler house, cell room and garage are 
of fire proof construction. 

Final sketches and layouts for the new Central 
Station and Courts Building to be erected on the 
site located at 1121-1131 South State street were 
approved by the Police Department and the Finance 
Committee. Final working drawings, including the 
mechanical, ventilation and heating work, are being 
prepared and will be completed about October 15, 
1926. A contract, in the amount of $129,231.00 
was ajwarded for the clearing of the site and con- 
struction of foundation piers. The work was 
started on August 24th and should be completed by 
November 8, 1926. Specifications were written for 
the manufacture and fabrication of structural steel 
and are now being printed. The building, as now 
planned, will be confined to the site owned by the 
City, 120 feet by 140 feet in area; thirteen or fifteen 
stories high in addition to a 16-foot basement and 
a 14-foot sub-basement. The structure is to be of 
stone and face brick exterior, of fireproof con- 
struction throughout, and will accommodate prac- 
tically all downtown police activities in addition to 
providing several courtrooms. 

Bureau of Streets — Construction of a new garage 
building located at the southeast corner of Wright- 
wood and Ashland avenue for the Street Depart- 
ment was completed and turned over for occupancy. 
The building covers the area of 111 feet by 161 
feet; is of fireproof construction and contains all 
modern facilities, including an office, locker room, 
tool room and store rooms. The project cost $55,- 
000.00. 

Drawing and specifications were made and con- 
tracts awarded in the amount of $2,707.00 for in- 
stalling the plumbing and drainage work required 
in laying out two new playgrounds at 1615-1617 
West 33rd place and the northwest corner of Lawn- 
dale and Wilson avenues. 
Board of Local Improvements. 

The Board of Local Improvements held 30 public 
hearings and transmitted 1190 ordinances for pas- 
sage to your honorable body. These involve 117,- 
325 parcels of property and represent improve- 
ments at an estimated cost of $38,922,905.00. 

Wacker Drive Improvement. 

Ninety-five per cent of the work on this gigantic 
improvement has been completed, all concrete has 
been placed and the drive was formally opened 
October 20th. 

It was estimated by the various Commissions and 
Engineers, having intimate knowledge of the scope 
of this improvement, that at least four years W'Ould 
be required to remove the buildings and complete 
the work. The Board designed a practical system 
■ of subdividing the work so that a four years' job 
has been finished in two years. 

From present estimates, there will be a saving of 
$500,000.00 on the improvement as against the 
figures of our own and other engineers.

Not a man was killed or even severely hurt on 
the work, despite its dangerous character and the 
rate at which it was speeded up. 

Other Improvements. 

Specifications and contract documents for the 
wrecking of buildings on land condemned for the 
Garland Coui'l Improvement arc being prepared and 
arc practically completed. Plans, specifications and 
contract documents for the improvement as a whole 
arc in course of preparation. 

The ordinance for the North Ashland Avenue Im- 
provement from Fullerton avenue to Cortland street 
(omitting the bascule bridge over the Chicago River 
and the stationary bi'idge over the Chicago, Mil- 
waukee & St. Paul Railroad tracks), was passed on 
July 8, 1926. There are 857 parcels of property in 
this improvement. The owners of 735 parcels have 
already entered into stipulations of settlement 
which have been approved by the Court. 

Preliminary designs and tralTic studies are now 
being made for double decking 22nd street or 
building a viaduct along 22nd street from Ashland 
avenue east to the Chicago River. 

Distinct progress has been made on the North 
Robey Street Improvement from Fullerton avenue 
to Diversey parkway. Necessary permits have been 
secured from the State of Illinois and the War De- 
partment, the preliminary resolution has been 
passed and the ordinance, ordinance drawings (76) 
and Engineer's estimate completed. At the required 
public hearing held September 10, 1926, the pro- 
ceedings were approved, and subsequently on Sep- 
tember 15, 1926, an ordinance for this improve- 
ment was submitted to your honorable body. This 
improvement will include the construction of a 
bascule bridge and viaduct, pavement of the street, 
and an electric lighting equipment, as well as all 
other accessories necessary to make this street 
accessible for trafTic. The assessment roll in con- 
nection therewith will be filed in court shortly 
after the ordinance is passed. Numerous prelimi- 
nary drawings prepared and w-ork has been com- 
menced on construction drawings. 

On South Robey street from Blue Island avenue 
to 33rd street numerous preliminary studies and 
sketches have been made. The necessary appli- 
cation for permit has been made to the State of 
Illinois. Application has been made to the War 
Department and conditionally approved by the Dis- 
trict Engineer. The ordinance is now in prepa- 
ration and should be ready by January 25, 1927. 

On the Pershing Road (39th Street) Improve- 
ment, preliminary sketches have been made for a 
trestle bridge over the west arm of the South Fork 
of the South Branch of the Chicago River, necessary 
permits have been issued by the State of Illinois 
and assurance obtained from the District Engineer 
of the War Department that no Federal permit for 
the construction of this bridge will be required. 
The required public hearing on this improvement 
will be held sometime in December.

amounting to $18,434,986.75, with a total mileage 
of approximately 18 miles. 

There are pending about 60 miles of street open- 
ing and widening proceedings in the various pre- 
liminary stages. 

A petition for the widening of South Halsted 
street from Vincennes avenue to the southerly City 
limits, covering a distance of about 5% miles, was 
filed in court on July 3, 1925. The award and 
assessment roll were filed in court on November 7, 
1925. This provides for a street 100 feet in width. 
Confirmation of the assessment roll by the court is 
expected some time this year or the early part of 
next year. 

An assessment roll has also been filed for the 
widening of the roadway of South Halsted street 
from the South Branch of the Chicago River to 
Harrison street. This roadway will be 47 feet when 
completed. Confirmation is expected within a few 
weeks. 

A petition for the widening of North and South 
Halsted street between Harrison street and Fulton 
street was filed in court on March 2, 1926. 
Appraisals are now being made of the land and 
buildings to be taken in connection with the prepa- 
ration of the award and assessment roll. This 
portion of the street is to be widened to 100 feet, 
and will result in a roadway approximately 70 feet 
in width. 

Contract has been awarded and work is now 50% 
completed for the widening of the roadway of 
Lawrence avenue to a width of 46 feet between 
North Clark street and North Ashland avenue, and 
60 feet between North Ashland avenue and North 
Western avenue. 

The original condemnation proceeding for the 
widening of Elston avenue to a width of 100 feet 
from Lawrence avenue to Milwaukee avenue was 
abandoned, and in lieu thereof a proceeding has 
been instituted for widening the roadway to a 
width of 48 feet. An ordinance has been prepared

and is now pending furtlier action by your Com- 
mittee on Local Industries, Streets and Alleys. 

The prooeedinsx for the widening of Indiana ave- 
nue between East 2ard street and the north line of 
the first private alley north of East 16th street 
boulevard, will be confirmed in a few weeks. 

The proceeding for the widening of North LaSallc 
street from West Washington street to West Ohio 
street wheii completed, will result in the making 
of a street 120 feet in width. This case is now 
being tried, and the prompt confirmation of the 
assessment depends largely upon the reasonableness 
of the attitude of certain of the property owners. 

The proceedings for widening North LaSalle 
street from Ohio "street to Eugenie street is also in 
court. This proceeding provides for a street 108 
feet in width. Confirmation by the court is ex- 
pected shortly after the widening of North LaSalle 
street from West Washington street to Ohio street 
is completed. 

The proceeding for the opening of Kimball ave- 
nue between Wellington street and Diversey avenue 
will be confirmed the latter part of this year. 
From Lawrence avenue to the City limits arrange- 
ments are being made to widen this roadway for its 
entire length to 40 feet. Part of this has already 
been accomplished. 

Seicer Department. 

During the year the Sewer Division of the Board 
of Local Improvements completed 32% miles of 
sewer. In addition, work of considerable scope has 
been done by private owners under its supervision, 
notably the sewer in the territory bounded by 
106th street, 112th street, Avenue and the In- 
diana-Illinois State Line. Large sewer systems— 
the Clyde avenue system, California avenue sys- 
tem, 6'8th street system and the Peterson avenue 
system — practically all in new territory and 
urgently necessary for sanitary purposes — have 
been completed or are under construction. The 
supplemental assessment for the Clifton avenue and 
Broadway sewer has been confirmed and work will 
begin October 11. 1926, using the tunnel system in 
the heavily built-up and congested portion of the 
district. 

Other sewer proceedings worthy of note here, both 
because of their magnitude and their instrinsic 
value to the difTerent neighborhoods they are de- 
signed to serve, are: 74th street system, covering 
the area bounded by 67th street, 75th street. Stony 
Island avenue and Lake Michigan. The estimated 
cost of this improvement is $296,000.00. The as- 
sessment roll has been filed. The petition to assess 
for the Berteau avenue system from the Canal to 
the Citv limits, has been filed in court. This 
project 'which is to cost .$2,740,000.00 provides a 
combined relief sewer and a new sewer for the 
annexed Norwood Park territory. Confirmation is 
expected soon on the Cicero avenue sewer system. 
The territory embraced in its provisions is Kostner 
avenue to Laramie avenue. South Branch of Drain- 
age Canal to 63rd street. Its estimated cost is 
$740,000.00. 

23.71 miles of house drains installed. 
Sidewalk Department. 

The Sidewalk Department during the period 
covered by this report built approximately 142 
miles of sidewalks, average cost per mile $8,032.00; 
total $1,140,544.00. 



Street Department. 

During the year the Board of Local Improve- 
ments has awarded contracts for 1,764,625 square 
yards or 110.3 miles of street paving and 116,760 
square yards or 14.6 miles of alley paving. In 
addition authority was given to private contractors 
for the construction of 900,000 square yards or 
112.5 miles of alleys. Approximately four-fifths of 
this work now is completed. 

Newly paved arteries traversing Ihe length of the 
Cily are provided in the work of the year. The 
completion of the pavement of Central avenue from 
North avenue to Grand avenue and between 
Lawrence avenue and Higgins road gives a con- 
tinuous pavement between North avenue and 
Higgins road on this thoroughfare. 

Confirmation of the assessment for paving Archer 
avenue from Kostner avenue to Cicero avenue was 
made on September 16, 1926. This is now under 
contract and the work will be completed this fall. 
The improvement closes a long existing gap in the 
pavement of this important street. 

The paving of Clinton street from Harrison street 
to Roosevelt road is now under construction. 

The contract for the paving of Milwaukee avenue 
between Carmen avenue and the Northwest City 
Limits — two miles — was awarded on September 
20th. 

The first steps that have been taken to provide 
an artery on the north and west sides comparable 
to Roosevelt Road on the south and west sides, is 
the widening of the roadway of West Chicago ave- 
nue from North Clark street to Larabee street from 
50 to 70 feet. 
Accounting Division. 

Due to economies effected by the Board from the 
5% allowed by law in all special assessment pro- 
ceedings to cover cost of same to the City, expendi- 
tures have been kept within 3%, thus netting a 
saving of about $400,000.00, which has been trans- 
ferred to the credit of the Corporate Fund. 

Law Department. 

The usual prompt disposition of opinion requests 
made to this department has continued. 357 such 
requests were made in the period from January 1, 
1926 to October 1, 1926, all but 10 of which had 
been answered at the later date. The litigation of 
the city has been diligently attended to as indicated

JOURNAI.— CITY COUNCIL. 



Novomibei- 3, 1926. 



Publication has been made of a third volume of 
opinions of this olTice covering the administration 
year from April 15, 1925 to April 14, 1926. 

For the first time in the law department's his- 
tory there has been prepared and published a gen- 
oral index of all opinions rendered by the Corpora- 
tion Counsel and Assistants covering the period 
from January 1, 1872 to April 15, 1925. The use- 
fulness of such an index is manifest, for it obviates 
the necessity of referring to the individual volumes 
of opinions in order to learn of prior decisions in 
the disposition of questions bearing on the same 
or related subject matters. 

Important among the cases now on trial, finally 
disposed of, or on appeal are the following: 

The Tribune Company v. Thompson et al., (a case 
in which the city was originally made party defend- 
ant). This suit, in which complainant (suing as a 
taxpayer) seeks to recover over a million dollars 
for expert fees alleged to have been fraudulently 
and unlawfully paid in the year 1920' for work in 
connection with the so-called city beautiful im- 
provements, has been on trial since March of this 
year. After a full and complete investigation of the 
facts by this department in 1923, the City on 
petition to the Circuit Court was permitted to 
change its pleadings so as to become in effect a co- 
complainant, and has since rendered all possible in- 
formation and assistance to the taxpayer-complain- 
ant. 

The case of Chicago 'Motor Coach Company, et al 
v. City of 'Chicago was argued and submitted to 
the Supreme Court on briefs at the June 1926 Term. 
A decision is expected in December. In that case 
the company and various individuals filed a bill 
for injunction in the Circuit Court of Cook County 
to restrain the City of Chicago from interfering 
with the operation of the company's buses which 
are operating on city streets without a license or 
franchise from the city. The company contends 
that certificates of necessity and convenience from 
the Illinois Commerce Commission furnish com- 
plete authority for operation over any city streets 
designated in the certificates. The city claims legal 
control over its streets and the right to grant or 
refuse a license or permission for the use of desig- 
nated streets by motor bus lines as public utilities. 
After patient and exhaustive hearing, Judge Hugo 
M. Friend in the Circuit Court sustained the city's 
contention. On a certificate that the validity of a 
city ordinance was involved, an appeal was prose- 
cuted directly to the Supreme Court. The issues 
involved in the case are of far reaching importance 
not only as to the use of city streets by motor bus 
lines, but as to such use by all other transporta- 
tion and public utility facilities. 

The case of Chicago, North Shore & Milwaukee 
Railroad v. City of Chicago is now being argued 
before Judge Denis E. Sullivan in the Superior 
€ourt. In that case the company filed a bill to 
enjoin the city from interfering with the opera- 
tion of the company's trains over the elevated rail- 
way structures, including the Union Loop in Chi- 
cago. The city has filed a crossbill asking an in- 
junction against such operations unless authorized 
by city ordinance. The issue in the case is the 
right of the city to control the use of its streets 
by interurban electric railroads. 

In People ex re] City of Chicago v. The Chicago 
City Railway Company, the city filed a petition in 
the Circuit Court of Cook County praying that a 
\^Tit of mandamus issue directed to the street rail- 
way company ordering the company to remove its 



street car tracks in 22nd street between Michigan 
avenue and Archer avenue from their existing lo- 
cation and relocate the tracks in the center of the 
street as and when widened. Previously the City 
Council had directed the widening of 22nd street 
by the condemnation of a 54 foot strip of land on 
the south side of the street and widening the road- 
way from 38 to 88 feet. If the tracks are permitted 
to remain in their existing location after the road- 
way is widened, the roadways on either side of the 
street railway tracks will be of decidedly unequal 
width, being 9 feet on the north side of the street 
and 63 feet on the south side of the street. Suit 
was filed in June, tried in July, and on the 25th of 
August the trial court decided it in favor of the 
street railway company. An appeal was prosecuted 
from this judgment by the city and immediately 
perfected to the October Term of the Supreme 
Court, where it is now on the advisement docket, 
all the briefs having been submitted and the case 
orally argued. The decision of the Supreme Court 
is expected at the December Term. Beside the mat- 
ter under consideration in the particular case which 
would involve an expenditure of something in ex- 
cess of $300,000, the question raised will determine 
the general right of the city to require public utility 
companies to relocate their equipment and facilities, 
and otherwise conform them to the needs and re- 
quirements of the public welfare and of public im- 
provements. A considerable number of similar im- 
provements are contemplated and it is expected that 
the Supreme Court's opinion when rendered will 
finally determine the question whether such cost 
of relocation must be met by the utility companies 
affected or by the city and property owners abutting 
the line of such improvement. 

In case of City of Chicago vs. Wolff and Southern 
Surety Co., Appellate Court affirmed the decision of 
the Circuit Court, and the judgment was made final 
by the Supreme Court, resulting in payment of 
$86,769.67 on July 1, . 1926, which, added to the 
$15,000.00 originally paid on the Wolff bond, made 
a total of $101,769.67, or the entire amount em- 
bezzled with interest from the time of the judg- 
ment. 

The case of Tahramer et al vs. Bundesen, et al., 
which involves the sale of tuberculosis milk in the 
City of Chicago, was fought in the Kane County 
Circuit Court. While a tempoarry injunction was 
entered in this case, an attempt to hold the Com- 
missioner of Health for contempt of court failed, 
and the ordinances of the city passed at the close 
of the year 1925 have up to the present time been 
enforced. 

The case of Gallery vs. City of Chicago, pending 
for more than 15 years in which $200,000.00 dam- 
ages were claimed was settled with the approval 
of the City Council for $12,000. 

The case of Wisconsin Lime & Cement Co. vs. 
City of Chicago, wherein the validity of the weigh- 
master's ordinance was attacked, was decided by the 
United States Supreme Court in favor of the city. 

The case of People ex rel City of Chicago vs. Com- 
mercial Union Insurance Co. and the case of People 
ex rel City of Chicago vs. Skandia Insurance Co., 
both involving the amounts which the city may 
collect from foreign insurance companies under the 
Fire Department tax were decided in favor of the 
city by the Supreme Court of Illinois so that the 
city may hereafter compel the agents to make the 
reports and may collect two per cent on gross prem- 
iums of all insurance written within the city with 
the exception only of such premiums as were act-

ually returned. While these decisions did not give 
the "city all it claimed, they may be regarded as 
favorable to the city. 

An important victory for tlie city was the deci- 
sion of the Illinois Supreme Court in October, 1925, 
upholding the city's jurisdiction over private har- 
bor slips, which right was contested by the C B. & 
Q. R. R. Co. 

The amount of moneys collected in the Collection 
Division totaled $137,975.95. This sum does not 
include city traction warrants or warrants for elec- 
tric or otlier projecting sig-ns (D warrants) which 
heretofore were collected by the Law Department 
but are now being collected by the City Comptroller.

The status of the city's financial matters for the 
period from January 1, 1926 to December 31, 1926, 
(in part estimated) is as follows:

JO'OHNAL— CITY COUNCIL. 



Novemlber 3, 1926. 



Corporate Fund — Esiimaled Revenue and Expense, January i to December 31, 1926. 

Surplus Dec. 31, 1925 $999,607.15 

Increase by adjustments 183,403.87 

Surplus as adjusted $1,183,011.02 

Current Year 

Revenue $48,939,002.62 

Taxes $33,340,848.42 

Miscellaneous 15,598,154.20 

Expense 48,985,843.30 

Excess of Expense $ 46,840.68 

Estimated surplus December 31, 1926 $1,136,170.34 



This statement contemplates and is based upon an 
increase of $85,000,000 in the assessed valuation of 
1926 over 1925, this being the same amount of in- 
crease in 1925 over 1924. 

It should be borne in mind, however, that the re- 
lief given the Corporate Fund in 1925 through the 
evasion of the payment of the Sanitary District bills 
and allowing them to take judgment for the same, 
and postponing the payment of other bills, has re- 
sulted in a debt of about $2,800,000 for judgments. 

The fact still remains that the revenue of the 
Corporate Fund under existing law and the present 
administrative methods of outside agencies con- 
trolling valuations does not produce a revenue ade- 
quate to the needs of the Corporate Purposes Fund, 
and the efforts to escape the consequences of these 
conditions by postponing the payment of bills and 
extending the burden to future tax payers and de- 
pending upon salvage in departments as well as little 
unexpected realizations of revenue is only temporiz- 
ing with the inevitable. 

Additional revenue may be secured in several 
ways: a just valuation of real estate, and an earnest 
effort to assess sequestered personal property would 
not only increase greatly the City's revenue, but 
would also make possible a reduction in the tax 
rate. 

The audit of Miscellaneous Revenue for the year 
1925 shows an increase in the revenue from public 
"utility compensation as follows : 

1925 Compensation $3,438,646.11 

1926 Compensation 3,712,958.46 

This does not include the payments of the Surface 
Lines Companies in the Traction Fund. 

This department is co-operating with the Corpora- 
tion Counsel in his attempt to maintain the juris- 
diction of the City over public utility companies and 
to compel such companies to pay compensation to 
the City. 

The interest earnings of all City funds for the 
twelve months ended July 31, 1926, as compared 
with the same period of 1925, are as follows: 



1925 1926 
From cash in banks. .$1,183,040.80 $1,115,163.05 
From investment se- 
curities 1,205,840.95 1,272,470.97 

Totals $2,388,881.75 $2,387,634.02 

The efforts of this department to bring about, a 
more prompt payment of the 2% foreign fire in- 
surance tax resulted in collecting a total of $459,- 
330.00 up to August 31st, whereas $356,304.66 was 
the total collected in the same period of 1925. 

On account of a poor season for bathing, the re- 
venue from the City's beaches fell this year as com- 
pared with 1925. 

The total receipts of 1925 being $24,613.87 

And for 1926 21,621.6a 

The concessions at the Municipal Pier paid the 
City in 1925 as compensation a total of $51,029.41. 
The amount received in 1926, $44,253.91. 

The City realized $36,776.52 from the sale of 
junk in the twelve months ended July 31, 1926, as 
compared with $25,084.20 for the same period of 
192'5.

Sales: 

School property at 57th and Ingleside was sold to 
the University of Chicago for $37,800. This was 
the third attempt to sell this property. High bids 
previously rejected were $30,025, at the first bid- 
ding, and $32,500.00 at the second bidding. 

The City conveyed to the County the north part 
of the House of Correction grounds as a site for the 
new Criminal Court and County Jail, taking in ex- 
change the old Criminal Court and County Jail prop- 
erty at Dearborn, Austin and Illinois. Bids for two 
old fire stations, 351 S. Wells and 12054 Wallace 
are now being advertised for. 

Leases: 

Twenty-six new leases have been made both to 
and from the City and fifty-five renewals. Interest- 
ing among these are the lease from the Board of 
Education to the City of school land at Clearing for 
a municipal air port and the lease from the City 
to the Public Library of part of Holden Park for a 
branch library. 

Taxes and Special Assessments: 

The Corporate Fund has paid in 1926, $54,918.00 
as against $111,548.00 in 1925, and the Water Fund, 
$8,628.00 as against $24,078.00. The large amounts 
in 1925 were due to the South Water and Market 
improvements. The City paid some $15,000.00 un- 
der protest for general taxes on leased properties 
where the leases provide for payment of taxes by 
the City. The City has claimed the right of exemp- 
tion in such cases and the matter is pending before 
the Supreme Court. 

Vacations of Streets and Alleys: 

Forty-three valuations have been made for street 
and alley vacations. Our estimates have exceeded 
the Assessors' valuations by $143,278.00. 

The Real Estate Agent served as real estate ex- 
pert for the Committee on Railway Terminals in 
its deliberations on river straightening. 

Tax Settlements: 

Total amount of City tax claim settlements to 
date exclusive of forfeited specials is $208,993.09, 
which probably will amount to $250,000.00 by the 
end of the year, as against $186,526.64 in 1925. 
This increase is due both to the greater amount of 
local improvement work being done and to the act- 
ivity Of the real estate market. 

Some years ago it was thought that the City's 
tax claims were not worth anything like the in- 
vestment and interest thereon, but with the rapid 
development and growth of the City and the great 
increase of land values, lots which were regarded 
as of small value are becoming valuable and it is 



probable that these claims in time will return far 
more than we had expected. 

In addition to the settlements above mentioned, 
the County Treasurer has paid to the City this year 
$412,400.07 for the redemptions of forfeited spe- 
cials. 

Efficiency Division: 

Approximately three hundred contracts were 
passed upon by the Engineer in charge of the Effi- 
ciency division. The field force work consisted of 
making various test audits of stock accounts, col- 
lecting data in the field for budget purposes and the 
preparation of the 1926 and 1927 budgets. The 
1926 budget cost approximately $9,500.00. The Ef- 
ficiency Division also spent considerable time in 
collecting and furnishing data for the Mayor's in- 
vestigating Committee which handled the reorgan- 
ization plan of the Comptroller's Office. The 1926 
budget work will be completed and in the hands of 
Your Honorable Body at this meeting. 

The following quantity of work was handled by 
the Statistical Division for the year 1926: 

A total of 566,090 checks were listed, totaled and 
balanced and distribution made by departments and 
Pension funds. 

An analysis of 141,675 arrests for offense, by 
groups of ages, social status, districts, occupation, 
nativity, sex, pending cases, Municipal and Criminal 
Court disposition and amount of fines imposed. 

A total of 24,378 deaths and 38,730 births were 
tabulated by sex, color, race, nativity, occupation 
and other categories. 

Statistical reports were made on 11,426 fires 
showing battalion, hour, cause of fire, place of 
origin, occupancy, class of building, interior finish, 
height in stories and number of persons rescued, 
injured and killed. 

Reports were tabulated on approximately 60,000 
inspections made by the following inspectors of the 
Health Department: City and County Milk, Yards 
and Markets, Ventilation, Plumbing, Smoke and 
Dredging. 

Just recently this department started to handle 
the accident reports and in the past four months 
have analyzed 6,000 cases. 

In addition to the above this section compiles cost 
data on the operation and maintenance of the 
water pumping stations. 



Figures taken from the reports of the United 
States Bureau of • Census referring to financial 
statistics of cities for the year ending December 
31, 1925, show the following information: 

Per capita governmental costs are as follows: 

St. Louis $34.26

Civil Service Commission. 

The Commission is now engaged in formulating 
for adoption a complete re-classification of the 
public service. When this classification is com- 
pleted, it will make the civil service of Chicago 
more attractive as a career than it ever has been. 
The specifications will include duties, titles, com- 
pensations and qualifications of employes; also, con- 
ditions governing initial appointment, advancement 
and promotion, and will serve as a basis for appro- 
priation and current fiscal and civil service control. 

During the year, the Commission has conducted 
173 examinations, at which 7,910 persons competed. 
As in previous years, much valuable assistance was 
given the Commission by officers of the various 
departments, as well as by scientific and pro- 
fessional men. and men and women in the business 
world. Honorable mention is due these men and 
women who served as members of advisory exami- 
nation boards and through their active interest and 
unselfish work greatly assisted the merit system. 

The duties of the Commission are quasi-judicial 
as well as administrative. In its judicial capacity, 
the Commission has, investigated the conduct of 531 
persons. 94 persons were discharged, 187 ac- 
quitted, 183 fined and 17 reprimanded. The other 
cases are pending or charges have been withdrawn 



or postponed, or the accused parly has resigned 
pending a hearing. In connection with the pro- 
ceedings of the Trial Board, it may be pointed out 
that no person discharged by this Commission has 
boom reinstated by court order. All evidence is 
transcribed and given most careful consideration, 
later to be filed after the preparation of order of 
discharge. 

Three thousand and thirty-nine persons have 
been examined physically or medically or both dur- 
ing the year. Of these persons 65 were rejected 
as" unable to perform the duties of the position 
for which they had applied. In the preparation of 
standards the Commission has had in mind two 
main purposes, first, to exclude from the service 
candidates who, at the time of the examination, 
were unable to perform the duties of the employ- 
ment they seek, and second, to exclude those who 
are likely, through disability to warrant premature 
retirement on pension. 

The number of persons certified or ordered rein- 
stated from the eligible list during the period 
covered by this report was 7,687. Of this number, 
4.668 were in competitive service and 3,019 were 
in the non-competitive or unskilled labor service. 

Department of Police. 

This department is gradually overcoming the 
almost insurmountable difficulties facing it in the 
apprehension of killers engaged in the illegal liquor 
traffic warfare in Chicago and environs. Because 
of their own code of reprisal to wreak vengeance 
and their command of huge defense funds with 
which to thwart justice in event of capture, these 
bands of criminals feel themselves to be immune 
from punishment; but slowly, yet surely, they are 
being overcome by their own kind and through the 
processes of law. 

Crimes, in general, reported to this department, 
however, are decreasing, as can be noted from the 
following statistical data:

This deparlmeni lias also taken an active part in 
presenting evidence and obtaining convictions in 
the Criminal Court of this County, as is evidenced 
by the following:

During the year 1926 one hundred new Ford 

car? were added to the equipment of this depart- 
ment, making a total of 207 Fords now in use on 
the streets in this City. During the same time six 
Cadillac touring cars were added, making a total 
of 33 Cadillac cars now in use, which are fully 
equipped with shotguns, tear gas bombs and every 
known device used to apprehend criminals. 

From January 1, 1926, up to the present time, 
six members of this department lost their lives in 
tbe discharge of their duty, and during this time 
32 persons were killed by members of this depart- 
ment. 226 members of this department received 
creditable mention in this period, and 120 were 
awarded extra compensation. 

House of Correction. 

In tbe first nine months of this year, the number 
of prisoners received at the House of Correction 
was 17.677, which would indicate a total of 20,000 
inmates for the calendar year of 1926. This latter 
figure is estimated for tbe purpose of making com- 
parison with prior years: 

1921 .• 8,565

1923 15,096 

1994 15,494 

1925 .'.'.".'.'.' 22,023 

At the present time there is being maintained an 

average of 2,100 inmates per day. 

The John Worthy School buildings have been 
wrecked to make way for the new County Jail 
building. The estimated cost of wrecking these 
buildings w-as $25,000.0d^ By having this work 
done by inmates most of the building material was 
salvaged and can be sold for approximately $20,- 
000.00. The school buildings are now entirely 
cleared away and the site could be used imme- 
diately by the County. Much of the material from 
the wrecked buildings has been used for repair of 
other buildings and for new construction. 

A new guard tower has been erected on the 
Sacramento avenue wall — a needed improvement as 
well as an additional safeguard. 

The stone crusher plant and brick yard were shut 
down for part of tbe year owing to the unsafe con- 
dition of the old crusher engine room boilers. The 
installation of new boilers secured from the 22nd 
Street Pumping Station was completed in May of 
this year and activities have been resumed. Since 
May '4th, 2,141,600 brick have been molded, 1,833,- 
000' brick set, 791,750 shipped to the Street and 
Sewer Departments, and 408,600 are in the kiln 
.shed ready to "burn". 

During the same period (four months"i 6,450 
yards of stone liave been crushed and 5,272 yards 
shipped. 

Last winter from the large fresh water pond 968 
tons of ice were harvested. 



Receipts for the period covered by the report 
from the sale of products of the institution (brick, 
stone, pottery, brooms, printing, etc.) and from 
laundry work for the Police and Health Depart- 
ments, also boarding of prisoners for the United 
States Department of Justice, Cook County and out- 
side towns, sale of old material (City Junk Yards), 
sale of farm products and miscellaneous items, 
totaled $397,979.22. This amount refers to actual 
receipts only and does not include any estimates of 
the value of the work done and products made for 
use in the institution, which is considerable. 

Receipts 'for the past five calendar years were 
as follows: 

1922 $361,765.07 

1923 294,583.74 

1924 233,457.48 

1925 321,719.45 

1926 397,979.22 (October 1, 1925, to 

October 1, 1926.) 

These figures do not include the amount of fines 
collected for the Municipal Court which average 
$100,000.00 per year. 

Total expenditures for the various budget items 
(including salaries, general material and supplies, 
provisions, hospital supplies, fuel, machinery, 
boarding female offenders in House of Shelter No. 
1 and No. 2, amounted to $595,730.86 for the year 
from October 1, 1925, to October 1, 1926. Expendi- 
tures for the past five years are as follows : 

1922... $457,725.41 

1923 514,505.40 

1924. . 532,470.43 

1925 581,500.00 

1926 595,730.86 (October 1, 1925, to 

October 1, 1926.) 

Fire Department. 

The greatest achievement of the Fire Depart- 
ment has been a reduction in the per capita fire 
loss. This is especially to be noted because the 
number of fire alarms and fires has increased, as 
well as the fact that the number of buildings has 
also increased. The cause of the reduced per 
capita fire loss is the increased efficiency of the 
Fire Department, the installation of modern water 
tow^ers and the use of other heavy stream devices. 

A $1,400,000.00 bond issue was passed for the 
purpose of installing new fire houses wherever 
they were found to be needed, for building new 
flro houses to take the place of dilapidated and old 
houses, and to repair and rehabilitate existing 
structures. The sites for the new companies are 
now being obtained. Uniform plans for single 
engine houses, single hook and ladder houses and 
double houses are now being prepared. Work has 
started on many new houses and by spring many 
of the proposed houses will be ready for oc- 
cupancy. 

A new fire station was built for Engine No. 83 
and Squad No. 4 at Lafayette place just behind the 
Uptown Theatre. These companies w^ere formerly 
housed in the Essanay Studio on Argyle street, for 
which the City was paying $300.00 a month rent 
and supplying the heat to a group of buildings 
covering one square block of ground. 

The quarters of Engine Company No. 7, located 
at Blue Island avenue and Halsted street, which 
had been recommended for abandonment by the 
Fire Department Survey Commission, were discon- 
tinued and the personnel assigned to a new engine

company in the vicinity of Grace street and Menard 
avenue. 

En-ine Company No. 93. an extra company 
formerly quartered with Engine Company No. 1 
at Wells and Van Buren streets, both of which 
companie'^ were recommended by the Survey Com- 
mission to be transferred to more suitable locations, 
was disbanded as an engine company and re- 
organized as a truck company stationed at Mont- 
rose and Kedzie avenues. This vicinity was m 
dire need of hook and ladder service since the 
nearest truck company was four miles distant. 

A very advantageous lease was affected for 
En-ine Company No. 37. the fireboat company, at 
the old Northwestern Depot, Wells street bridge. 
This building, together with light and heat, is 
being furnished the City for $75.00 per month. 
The old quarters were wrecked and demolished to 
make way for the Wacker drive project. 

That the department has been progressive and is 
keeping abreast with the City's growth is indi- 
cated by the creation of two new fire districts 
requiring two additional division marshals in 
charge This enabled some of the fire districts 
which heretofore covered vast areas and were too 
distant from the Division Marshal's headquarters 
to be brought closer to the headquarters. The 
needs of these new fire districts and an increase 
in number of division marshals have always been 
requested by the Underwriters in their bi-annual 
reports. 

The new battalion district established on the 
north side has brought about a decided improve- 
ment. 

\11 vacancies in the Fire Department, both for 
officers and men, are filled at once. The number 
of men is kept up to the number appropriated tor. 
All efficiency marks in promotional examinations 
in the Fire Department are now given by the cap- 
tain of the company, subject to the approval of 
his superior officers. ^ 

One of the outstanding accomplishments of the 
year which will mean much to the dependents of 
the personnel of the department, was the drive for 
the various firemen's benefit funds. This drive was 
unique in many ways. Not one penny of the money 
collected was spent for expenses. All moneys con- 
tributed went to the cause. All collections were 
made in the form of checks made payable to two 
banks, Foreman's National Bank and the Union 
Bank 'of Chicago. All funds have been audited by 
certified public accountants. To date more than 
$160,000.00 have been collected and deposited m 
the banks, drawing interest while awaiting dis- 
position by a committee of outstanding citizens 
who have been appointed for that purpose. 

New rules and regulations for the department 
have been drawn and published. This is the first 
time that the Fire Department has had a new act 
of rules since prior to 1910. At that time there 
was not a single automobile in the department. 
Th9 department is now entirely motorized and new 
rules and regulations are drawn relative to the use 
of motor equipment. These rules and regulations 
were drawn up with the assistance of the Cor- 
poration Counsel's office to the end that all the 
rules and regulations comply with the City ordi- 
nances and the Illinois Statutes pertaining to 
Municipal Fire Departments. 

There has been marked reduction in accidents to 
firemen while in quarters as well as a marked re- 



duction in accidents while responding to and re- 
turning from fires. 

-V new system of record keeping for Division 
Marshals and Battalion Chiefs has reduced wast- 
age of materials and supplies throughout the de- 
partment. 

Many improvements were made which tend to 
improve the efficiency of the Fire Department as a 
fire fighting unit. Among these may be mentioned 
the placing of turret pipes on the apparatus of the 
ten squad companies of the department. This per- 
mits a large volume of water under heavy pressure 
to be discharged through a large sized nozzle at- 
tached to the squad wagon. One man may operate 
these nozzles easily. These turret pipes have been 
needed for many years in order to more effectively 
control fires in large buildings. 

New acetylene lights using a flare arrange- 
ment supplied by a small cylinder of compressed 
acetylene gas were installed on the apparatus of 
the squad and truck companies in lieu of the old 
style water lights. The new light selected after 
competitive tests by the Division Marshals gives 
more light, is safer, and is more economical than 
the old type water light. The old style water lights 
cost the department $270.00 per month to purchase 
charges. The new acetylene lights are costing the 
department about $30.00 per month. 

The entire oxygen breathing equipment on the 
apparatus of the ten squad companies was changed 
from the Paul breathing equipment to the McCaa 
type of oxygen breathing apparatus. This mask 
was selected by the Division Marshals following a 
competitive test and examination held at the Fire 
Department drill school. Each squad now carries 
four complete McCaa masks in a truck. This 
arrangement of masks and method of carrying the 
delicate and sensitive equipment is a distinct im- 
provement over the old method. It has met with 
the hearty approval of the officers and men. The 
new breathing equipment is smaller in design and 
the men state that it is easier to handle. They 
are able to get into smaller openings, such as man- 
holes, caissons, grain elevator pits and underground 
tank openings quicker than with the cumbersome 
old-type masks. 

Nine new quick raising aerials equipped with 85- 
foot extension ladders were purchased and placed 
in service. This eliminated nine old straight frame 
trucks, all of which had ladders which were 
manually operated. 

A new sixty-five foot mechanically raised water 
tower was purchased and placed in service on the 
north side. A new high pressure wagon is also 
part of the equipment of this water tower com- 
pany. 

Fifty thousand feet of three-inch Are hose was 
purchased at ninety-six cents per foot. This hose 
is equipped with a heavy reducing coupling, re- 
ducing from three inches to two and one-half 
inches. This price of ninety-six cents per foot is 
a remarkably good one when it is considered that 
two and one-half inch hose with a simple straight 
two and one-half inch coupling was purchased for 
$1.30 per foot under the old policies. Three inch 
hose should cost ordinarily at least twice as much 
as two and one-half inch hose. 

There have been installed in all buildings more 
than eighty feet in height erected within the last 
two years, wall hydrants which are located on the 
sidewalk level. These wall hydrants are operated

by using- Mic same Iiydrant wrench that operates 
the City hydrants located on all street corners. By 
attaching I heir hose to this wall hydrant and 
opening the valve the large high pressure fire 
pumps located in the basement of the building are 
immediafely placed in operation and water is 
pumped inio the Fire Department hose where it 
can be used for fire purposes in the immediate 
vicinity. The size and capacity of these high 
pressure pumps located in the tall office buildings 
are so great that water can be forced to the 
highest level which in some cases is 600 feet above 
the street level. 

Fire Prevention. 

Especial efforts have been made during the past 
years to make theatres safe for the theatre-going 
public. 

In the past combustible decorations have been 
permitted in the audience rooms and combustible 
scenery was permitted to be hung and used on the 
stages of theatres, without being treated with a 
fire-proofmg solution. The City ordinances ap- 
plicable to these cases have been strictly enforced 
with the result that now all scenery hanging on 
the stages of Chicago's theatres is flre-proofed and 
tested as required by the fire prevention ordi- 
nances before it is hung. 

Many of the fire prevention ordinances have 
been amended, eliminating unnecessarily drastic 
and arbitrary rules. So, too, many dangerous con- 
ditions existing in the City, such as the storage 
and handling of celluloid, fuel oil, gasoline and the 
use of aerial bombs, have been regulated and safe- 
guarded. 

There are now more inspections being made by 
the Fire Prevention Bureau and more money for 
inspections being turned over to the City Treasurer 
by the Fire Prevention Bureau than ever before. 

All Ford and Cadillac automobile repairs are now 
being done by the Fire Department Repair Shop at 
considerably less cost than formerly under the con- 
tract method. 

Special attention has been given during the year 
to plans and measures to add to the health and 
comfort of the men. These have resulted in the 
creation of a new spirit among the men which has 
been reflected in the improved character of their 
service. 

Department op Health. 

The health of Chicago continues to be good. The 
deaths for the 12 months ending September 30, 
1926. represent an annual mortality rate of 11.7 per 
1,000 population for this period. 

Especially satisfactory is the actual decrease in 
all deaths of persons below the age of 20 years. 
There were during the period covered by this re- 
port 40-8 fewer deaths of infants under one year of 
age than during the corresponding period for 1925. 

The number of deaths due to typhoid fever, con- 
genital malformations, and diarrhea and enteritis 
(under 2 years) was also decreased. 

Above the age of 20 years, there was an increase 
of deaths in each age group, the largest increase 
being at age period 60-70 years. 

The greatest increase in deaths was due to organic 
disease of the heart, chronic nephritis, pneumonia 
and diabetes, which together caused 1,292 additional 
deaths during the year. 

The birth rate increased from 19.6 to 20.3 per 



1,000 population, which represents an actual in- 
crease of 3,284 births. 

Communicable Diseases. 

There was a marked reduction in the number of 
cases of communicable diseases reported. The to- 
tal number reported during the past year was 45,- 
199 as compared with 61,639 during the corres- 
ponding period of 1924-1925. 

Typhoid fever has been kept at a minimum. The 
cases reported were 50 per cent less than the num- 
ber recorded during the preceding year. There were 
589 fewer cases of diphtheria. The number of cases 
of small-pox, measles, scarlet fever, whooping 
cough and pneumonia was also greatly reduced. 

Division of Social Eygiene. 

There were approximately 26,000 cases of venereal 
diseases reported to the Department of Health dur- 
ing the period from October 1, 1925, to October 1, 
1926, as compared with 25,000 reported during the 
previous 12 months and 18,000 in the year previous 
to that. 

During the year 167,790 visits were made by 
patients to the various clinics under the control of 
the Department of Health. In this group are in- 
cluded Central, City Hall, County Jail, and House 
of Correction clinics, also Lawndale Hospital. There 
was a monthly average of 3,870 different patients 
examined or treated at the Health Department clin- 
ics. The actual number of patients who came for 
examination or treatment during the year was 37.- 
442. Of these, 9,442 were found affl'icted m\ih 
venereal disease. 

There were 117,264 treatments for venereal dis- 
ease administered, including 12,0'00 injections of 
arsphenamine and the same number of intramuscu- 
lar mercury injections. 

Approximately 5,550 persons were sent to the 
Health Department from the iMorals Court for ex- 
amination. These persons were examined for syph- 
ilis, gonorrhea and chancroid. About 10,000 exam- 
inations were made on the Morals Court cases; of 
these, approximately 2,000 examinations revealed 
that the persons examined were infected with syph- 
ilis, gonorrhea or chancroid. 

There were 691 Morals Court cases hospitalized 
because of infective venereal conditions and ap- 
proximately 1,400 others were referred to clinics and 
private physicians for treatment. 

Ninety-one premises were placarded for venereal 
diseases. 

Municipal Contagious Disease Hospital. 

A total of 3,132 patients were cared for in the 
Municipal Contagious Disease Hospital, including the 
Lawndale division, during the past year. This is ap- 
proximately 400 patients less than were accommo- 
dated during a similar period for the preceding 
twelve months. This reduction in patients is at- 
tributable chiefly to the marked decline in diph- 
theria. But 521 diphtheria patients were admitted 
to the hospital, whereas a year ago 821 of such 
cases were received. Furthermore, the laryngeal 
type of diphtheria also showed a marked decrease, 
there having been but 96 such patients admitted, 
whereas during the preceding twelve months the 
number was 116. 

There was also a decline in the number of scarlet 
fever patients received; 1,178 such cases were ad-

Tl,r vouoreal .Hsoaso division of the Contagious 
Disease Hospital treated 698 women during the 
period covered by this report. This is an increase 
of about seven p.>r cent over the preceding year 
The therapeutic measures adopted for these cases 
are based on the most advanced scientific lines and 
incUule educational therapy as well as medical and 
surgical treatment for physical ailments. 
Isolation Hospital. 

There were 63 cases of small-pox admitted and 
of this number two died. For the corresponding 
period in the preceding year there were 103 ad- 
missions with 12 deaths. 
Buvpau of Child Welfare. 

During the past 12 months, a concentrated effort 
was made on infant welfare work, stressing (1) the 
importance of breast feeding; (2^ the prompt regis- 
tration of all births occurring in Chicago, and (3. 
all measures necessary to lower infant mortality. 

Be"-inning \pril. 1926, in addition to the book- 
let "Our Babies," every mother whose baby's birth 
was registered with the Health Department since 
\u-ust ^'0 1925, received a letter each month cov- 
ering the salient points necessary for the health 
and wellbeing of the mother and baby during the 
first year of the baby's life. 

The results obtained are very gratifying as, up to 
September 30, there was 408 fewer deaths of in- 
fants under one year in spite of an increase of 
3,284 births reported as compared with the same 
period a year ago. 

Infant Welfare Stations: During the year 23 in- 
fant welfare stations were operated by the bureau. 
A total of 115,144 visits to the stations' conferences 
for advice on the care and feeding of babies was 
recorded. 

Physical Examinations of School Children and 
Correction of Defects: During the past 12 mon hs, 
153 414 pupils were given a physical examination. 
Of 'this number, 135,833, or 78:57 per cent., were 
found to have defects requiring treatment 97 018 
corrections of physical defects were obt^J^^d -This 
is the largest number of corrections of physical de- 
fects in school children ever obtained m a similar 
period. 

The diphtheria prevention work was carried on 
as in previous years; 24,116 Schick tests and 4/,- 
443 doses of toxin-antitoxin were given. This work 
has been a factor in the progressive decline of 
diphtheria morbidity and mortality m Chicago. 

Nursin- Service : Twenty additional new schools 
with approximately 5,0-00 pupils have been assigned 
for nursing visits with no increase m personnel, mak- 
ing an average of 4,500 pupils per nurse. 

In co-operation with the American Red Cross, 
four nurses are assigned to teach the Home Hygiene 
and Care of the Sick courses in the parochial schools 
of the City. The course consists of lessons m per- 
sonal hygiene, home and community sanitation, 
home care of the sick, and treatment of minor emer- 
<^encies This service has been discontinued m the 
public schools, because these subjects are now in- 
cluded in the curriculum of the public schools. 

Two nurses assisted at the prenatal conferences 
conferred with expectant mothers and took charge of 
the urinalyses. Home visits were made and, where 



necessary, arrangements were made for the mother's 
delivery. 

Thirty-three nurses are assigned to the care of 
twenty-three infant welfare stations. For the past 
year the infant welfare nurses have had charge of 
the ultra-violet treatments given at a number of the 
stations to under-nourished and rachitic children. 
They also assist in giving Schick and toxin-anti- 
toxin injections on Saturday mornings. Mothers are 
instructed in the general care of themselves and 
baby and where the child is getting supplementary 
feedings, the mothers are instructed in milk modi- 
fications. 

The work that was especially stressed during the 
year was that in connection with the campaign for 
the promotion of breast feeding and reduction of 
infant mortality. For the purposes of intensive 
visiting, the City was divided into 160 districts, to 
each of which a nurse was detailed.- The Infant 
Welfare Society assumed charge of all birth regis- 
tration calls in its territ»ry, the remainder of the 
City being covered by Health Department nurses. 

Excellent co-operation was also given by the 
Visiting Nurse Association in this effort of the 
Health Department. Cards on all new babies seen 
by the visiting nurses, about 80O a month, were 
sent to the department for checking. These nurses 
also took charge of the treatments of minor skm 
conditions and pediculosis excluded from school, 
thus relieving the school nurses of a considerable 
amount of work. 

During the past year, the nurses of the Health 
Department made 160.798 calls on new babies up 
to the age of six months. The Infant Welfare So- 
ciety nurses made a total of 46,638 calls on new 
babies during this period. 
Bureau of Laboratories and Research,. 

4n interesting and instructive problem which has 
been in progress through most of the year is a com- 
parative study of the quality and quantity of sun- 
light in the Chicago area. Daily analyses of sun- 
light for its ultra violet ray content are being made 
by chemical methods. Various sections of the City 
are under simultaneous observation, viz., the Mu- 
nicipal Pier as the standard of highest clarity o 
the atmosphere, the roof of the City Hall, the street 
level of the loop, the parks, and the residence and 
factory districts. For comparative purposes a 
simultaneous test was run at the Indiana Dunes 
and at Chicago during the summer. 

After carrying the work through the approaching 
winter season, the department will have definite 
information as to the need of Chicago residents to 
resort to substitutes for sunlight in order to main- 
tain health and resistance to disease. 

Considerable research on oysters has been carried 
on and two scientific papers have been published 
on this subject, one dealing with the survival ot 
living typhoid germs in oysters and one reporting 
a study of colon bacilli in oysters and their value 
as an index of sanitary quality. 

It is interesting to note that the bacteriological 
t^sts of oysters received in the early fall of 1926 
show a decided improvement over the previous 
year. 

A bacteriological study of defective pasteurizing 
plants, conducted in co-operation with the bureau 
of dairy products, has demonstrated that living 
tubercle bacilli may readily survive pasteurization

in machinery which has certain mechanical defects. 
These studies emphasize the necessity of requiring 
that public milk supplies come from tuberculin 
tested cows, and indicate the inherent fallacy of de- 
pending on commercial pasteurization alone to ren- 
der tuberculous milk safe. 

During the year the bureau of laboratories ex- 
amined a total of 297,085 specimens, of which 41,- 
021 were examined in the hospital division. 

Bureau of Sanitary Engineering, 

Smoke Abatement: Much progress has been made 
in the abatement of smoke during the past year. 
The outstanding accomplishments were 

(1) The electrification of the Illinois Central 
Railroad thus completely abating the smoke 
nuisance from its suburban service. 
• (2) The abatement of smoke from heating plants 
through the co-operation of the Janitors' 
Union and the Chicago Real Estate Board. 

(3) The introduction of a Deisel oil-burning lo- 
comotive by the Chicago & Northwestern 
Railroad, for car switching on the Kinzie 
street terminal, and eliminating the use of 
steam engines at this location. 

(4) The introduction of tugs and steam craft, 
propelled by smokeless .motor power. 

The policy of assisting plant owners, by instruct- 
ing and suggesting methods for the elimination of 
smoke, has stimulated their co-operation and re- 
sulted in the equipping of a large number of power 
and heating plants so that they can operate withoui 
producing smoke. 

The following is a statistical summary of the 
activities of this division during the past twelve 
months:

As a result of the survey of mechanical ventila- 
tion equipment, the division has brought under its 
control systems having a total capacity of approxi- 
mately 59,936,000' cubic feet of air per minute. This 
is an increase of 37,906,000 cubic feet of air per 
minute over the preceding year. 

Remarkably good results were obtained in the can- 
vass of theatres. The condition of the mechanical 
ventilation equipment in these buildings is better 
than ever before in the history of the theatre in- 
dustry. 

Division of Community Sanitation: The work 
of this division has been materially changed due to 
the departmental policy of working only on those 
problems which have a direct bearing on the public 
health, thus removing from the scope of this divis- 
ion the handling of many petty nuisances and prop- 
erty damage complaints. This left more time to be 
devoted to those cases where a real benefit to the 
public health could be secured. 

Following is a summary of the activities of the 
division: 

Total inspections 68,525 

Total reinspections 39,175 

Total notices served 16,561 

Total abatements secured 12,827 

Division of Industrial Sanitation: This division 
is directing its efforts toward controlling and elim- 
inating many of the disagreeable odors created by 
various manufacturing plants. 

The following figures show the activities of this 
division for the iyear 1926 : 

Total inspections 18,132 

Total reinspections 5,694 

Total notices served 3,219 

Total abatements secured 1,521 

Summer Camps: An inspection of 55 summer 
camps accommodating children from Chicago was 
made during the past year. These were scattered 
over the states of Michigan, Indiana, Wisconsin and 
Illinois. In this work the welfare of approximately 
58,000 children was safeguarded and a very material 
and obvious improvement in the general equipment 
and sanitation secured through the co-operation of 
the persons in charge of the camps. 

Bureau of Inspection. 

During the past year, the second since the organi- 
zation of the Bureau of Inspection, the success and 
efficiency of the consolidated inspection service of 
the Department of Health has been demonstrated 
beyond question. 

While all current work was disposed of with 
alacrity, special attention was stressed on matters 
of major importance from a public health stand- 
point, such as smoke abatement, sterilization of 
eating and drinking utensils in food dispensing 
establishments, ventilation in places of employment 
and public assembly, and in public conveyances. 
The city was canvassed several times for the in- 
spection of food and industrial establishments and 
for the discovery of conditions affecting community 
sanitation. 

In addition to the regular work, many new activ- 
ities were inaugurated during the year. 

On December 14, 1925, a special canvass was 
started for the discovery of crowding and bad air 
conditions in public conveyances, stores, lodging 
houses, places of employment and public assemblies.

During- January, 19-26, about 15,000 placards warn- 
in? against Ihe danger of carbon monoxide poison- 
ing from exbaust gases of automobiles were posted 
by the inspectors in garages throughout the city. 

The practice of inspecting- all meat and meat food 
products offered for sale in retail establishments, 
for the United Stales government or the Chicago 
Health Department inspection stamps, was in- 
augurated in April, and a canvass of yards and va- 
cant lots throughout the City was made during the 
annual clean-up week in the same month. An in- 
spection of junk yards was added to the regular 
activities in June. 

A special drive was made on wagon peddlers 
bandlino- food subject to deterioration, especially 
tish. during June and the succeeding summer 
months, with good results. In many cases, the food 
was condemned as unwholesome and the peddlers 
arrested and fined. 

A canvass of establishments that sell, repair or 
shine shoes was started in July, in connection with 
the enforcement of the Department of Health regu- 
lations relating to the use of toxic solvents in leather 
dyes, and warning placards were posted in the places 
of business. 

Samples of all dusting powders, manufactured in 
the City, were collected for chemical examination 
in the " laboratory, to determine their conformity 
with the new state regulations relating to the use 
of zinc stearate in such powders. 

The following summary indicates the volume of

Food Inspection. 

Close supervision was given to the quality of oys- 
ters and shell fish shipped to Chicago, samples bemg 
taken promptly upon arrival of shipments. There 
were excluded from the Chicago market durmg this 
period U shippers for the reason that the quality 
of the oysters did not meet with our requirements. 

Certification by the U. S. Public Health Service 
was considered a prerequisite and was accepted m 
lieu of permits previously issued by this department. 

A regulation was put into eifect, whereby all 
carcasses of food animals shipped into the City shall 
have attached thereto the necessary visceral parts 
so that a technical inspection might be made, which 
resulted in seven cattle, 52 hogs, six sheep and 10 
goats being returned to the shippers for not com- 
plying with this rule. 

One country packing-house was shut off from 
supplying the Chicago market with meats, due to 
insanitary conditions and methods. 

One hundred seventy-five cans, approximately 
63,000 frozen eggs, were condemned in cold storage 
houses, due to the fact that they were unfit for 
food. 

Peddlers selling red hots and hot tamales were 
checked up closely as to sanitary conditions and 
equipment, the licenses of 18 being revoked be- 
cause of improper methods. Suits were instituted 
against a large number and fines assessed. These 



peddlers are now required to submit themselves and 
equipment before licenses will be approved. 

A drive was made on ice-cream peddlers, and 
they were required to submit themselves for a 
physical examination to the Department of Health 
before the issuance of licenses. 

During the year the Bureau of Food Inspection 
investigated 52 cases of alleged food poisoning.

Milk and Dairy Inspection. 

In the conservation of public health the control 
and safeguarding of the milk supply is, without 
doubt, one of the most important activities of the 
Department of Health. 

During the past 12 months a vigorous campaign 
was waged against the diseased dairy cow. In some 
of the districts from which the City's milk supply 
was derived, 80 per cent of the cows were found 
affliicted with tuberculosis. 

In conformity with the new milk ordinance, passed 
by the City Council in January, 1925, all milk sold 
in Chicago since April 1, 1926, has been required to 
be obtained only from healthy cows declared so by 
the Federal and State authorities under whose juris- 
diction the testing of cattle is being conducted. 

In co-operation with the United States Public 
Health Service, an extensive survey was made to 
determine the efficiency of milk pasteurizing and 
other dairy equipment in the 500 establishments 
handling Chicago's milk supply. The survey re- 
vealed numerous mechanical defects, resulting in 
quantities of milk reaching consumers which was 
not properly pasteurized. A definite program was 
promulgated and measures have been taken for the 
correction of these conditions, thus assuring Chi- 
cago's citizens a safe and wholesome product. 

During the year, 33,800 samples of milk were 
analyzed by the department, and 231,000 gallons of 
milk were condemned, which did not meet with the 
requirements set forth in the City milk ordinance. 

Municipal Tuberculosis Sanitarium. 

In many ways the past year has been the best 
in the history of the Municipal Tuberculosis Sani- 
tarium. Not only has general satisfactory progress 
been registered in the care and treatment of 
patients, and in heightened morale, but particular 
achievement is to be noted in several fields, the 
most noteworthy of which is the bringing to the 
point of construction of the new unit, which will 
provide about 225 additional beds and will cut the 
waiting list at least in half. 
Medical Department. 

A total of 1,516 patients were admitted to the 
Sanitarium during the year, as compared with 
1,946 during the preceding year. This is a de- 
crease of 430, mostly accounted for by the marked 
increase in the number of advanced cases admitted. 
The average length of stay of patients in 1926 was 
295.6 days as compared with 221.4 days in 1925. 
Although this has resulted in a much longer aver- 
age term of hospitalization per patient, it has con-

Iribulcd materially to the reduction in the total 
number of tubei'culosis cases in Chicago. This 
lor the reason (hat the greater the number of 
active cases isolated, the fewer infections there 
are. 

Patients discharged numbered l/i8i, of whom 
444 were discharged with their condition either 
arrested, quiescent or improved. This is especially 
significant because 45.62 per cent of the new 
patients were in the far advanced group. 

A total of 1,037 children were given care by the 
Sanitarium during the year. Of these, 205 were 
miMubors of I he Open Air Tent Colony. This colony 
is in operation during the school vacation period 
and is devoted to the care of children suffering 
from malnutrition, or anaemia or are in a con- 
dition to make them particularly susceptible to 
tuberculosis. Many physical defects were cor- 
rected, such as the removal of diseased tonsils, 
adenoids, and decayed teeth. 

Extensive and valuable service has been ren- 
dered during the year by the Consulting Staff, com- 
posed of leading specialists of Chicago, who aid 
the resident staff. The Consulting Staff deserves 
great credit not only for medical and surgical 
service to Sanitarium patients — which is unsur- 
passed in any tuberculosis hospital in the world — 
but also for its active part in the campaign to rid 
Chicago of tuberculosis infected milk. The au- 
thoritative information concerning the effects of 
infected milk and the dire need for tuberculin- 
tested milk, broadcast from the Consulting Staff 
Dinner Conference last December, gave tremendous 
impetus to the general movement for a purified 
milk supply. 

Laboratory Department. 

The equipping of the Municipal Tuberculosis 
Sanitarium Laboratory some time ago so as to 
make it the best of its kind is now yielding results. 
The routine work such as sputum examinations, 
urinalyses, blood and metabolism tests and animal 
inoculations for tuberculosis has been carried on. 
iMore significant is the progress in experimentation 
and research, which has been made during the last 
year. The "Danish Gold Cure" has been developed 
to a point that it is now being used extensively 
with good results. Radical improvement has been 
noted in a number of far advanced cases which 
otherwise seemed hopeless. There is little risk 
involved in the treatment but great care must be 
taken in choosing the cases for the gold cure appli- 
cation. 

The study of antibodies in the blood of tuber- 
culous patients was extended and the work takes 
rank with the best anywhere. Development of the 
study of the parasite which causes tuberculosis 
resulted in some tentative conclusions which, if 
conclusively demonstrated, may revolutionize not 
only the diagnosis but also the treatment of tuber- 
culosis. 

Recognition of the present standing of the 
Municipal Tuberculosis Sanitarium Laboratory is 
afforded by the fact that ten per cent of the pro- 
gram of the meeting of the National Association 
for the Study and Prevention of Tuberculosis was 
furnished by our laboratory. 

Dispensaries. 

The eight free tuberculosis dispensaries main- 
tained by the Sanitarium during the past year 
examined 34,333 new patients of whom 4,997 were 



diagnosed tuberculous and 6,805 were placed under 
observation. Field nurses made 349,242 home 
visits, giving bedside care to all needy cases. They 
gave a total of 3,375 baths, 6,254 dressings and 759 
special treatments. 

To indicate the extent of the current work of 
the dispensaries, on September 1st there were 
31,015 patients under their supervision — 9,812 
adults and 21,203 children. Of this number 31,015 
were open cases. 

During the past year 1,053 open cases of tuber- 
culosis were hospitalized and 4,567 new open cases 
of pulmonary tuberculosis were registered with 
the dispensaries. A total of 8,283 new cases of 
tuberculosis and 2,583 deaths from tuberculosis 
were reported. 

In the free dental clinics of the dispensary de- 
partment ten dentists have been employed on part- 
time service, giving, during the time covered by 
this report, 181,836 treatments and operations to 
30,717 patients. 

Of special value, in a preventative way, is the 
service rendered by the dispensaries to children. 
Without doubt hundreds of future cases of tuber- 
culosis are being checked. Not only does this 
service include examination and treatment but also 
education in general health and tuberculosis pre- 
vention. Children examined in tuberculosis clinics 
during the last year totaled 30,089, as compared 
with 25,033 the previous year. 

Other activities of the dispensaries include the 
operation of the central X-Ray laboratory by the 
Washington Boulevard Dispensary; orthopedic 
clinics at the Grand Crossing Dispensary and 
medical and nursing service in the Spalding School 
for Crippled Children. On September 30th there 
were 213 cases under treatment in the orthopedic 
clinics, for conditions such as bone tuberculosis. 
Osteomyelitis, Spastics, Club-feet, Rickets, Infantile 
Paralysis, Scoliosis, and miscellaneous defects, 
fractures and dislocations. A total of 1,050 patients 
attended these clinics last year. In the Spalding 
School for Crippled Children there is an average 
attendance per month of 515. During the past year 
243 clinics were held in this school and 963 
patients treated. The value of this humanitarian 
work — the rehabilitation of children handicapped 
by tuberculosis of the bone and deformities from 
other causes — is very manifest. 

Food and Fresh Air: These two elements, which 
are by far the most important in the treatment of 
tuberculosis, are supplied in abundance. The food 
is of wide variety, of the very highest quality and 
is served plentifully. Fresh vegetables and frurts, 
much of which is grown on the Sanitarium farm, 
gardens and in the six greenhouses, are served the 
year around. The richest tuberculin-tested milk 
obtainable and the best butter to be found any- 
where, are used. All foods are prepared in spot- 
lessly clean kitchens and with every sanitary rule 
scrupulously observed. Thus, the diet provided by 
the Sanitarium for its patients is wholesome, 
abundant and appetizing, and does much to, con- 
tribute to the recovery of the patients. 

Far from the smoke of the City, and surrounded 
by fields and lawns, the fresh air at the Sanitarium 
is almost equal to that of the mountains. 

Entertainment. Of vital importance to the phys- 
ical recovery of tuberculosis patients is a spirit 
of contentment and optimism. To secure the 
former, their minds must be occupied and the lat- 



.NovtMubor 3, 192(3.

tef tlioy must be given encouragement. Entertam- 
ment and diversion include moving piclure and 
vaudeville shows in the theatre building twice a 
week, complete radio equipment throughout, a 
circulating library, games and outdoor sports, 
band concerts, holiday entertainments, visitnig by 
relatives and friends— permitted on as liberal a 
basis as the welfare of the patients permits— and 
personal contact with and interest in the patients 
by the members of the Sanitarium Staff. 

Buildings and Grounds. 

Numerous improvements of various sorts have 
been made. These include the enlargement of the 
sun porch for nursery children into a solarium; 
added equipment, such as the new X-Ray apparatus; 
redecoration of the infirmary rooms throughout; 
laving of new^ walks and drives; and minor alter- 
ations and improvements. Everything possible has 
been done to maintain not only cleanliness and con- 
venience, but also beauty, in the feeling that at- 
tractiveness is an asset in the treatment of sick- 
ness as well as in the maintenance of health. 

After many months of consideration and plan- 
ning, a way has been evolved, without a bond 
issue, of financing the new $500,000.00 sanitarium 
unit. The architects' plans are completed, the first 
construction contract has been let and construction 
will be commenced almost immediately. This new 
building, providing 225 beds, will give the sani- 
tarium a total of approximately 1,200 beds, increas- 
ing its capacity by nearly twenty-five per cent. 
The first floor will contain fifty-five private rooms 
for men and the second floor the same number for 
women. The third floor will be given over to 
children, with a capacity of 110 to 125 beds for 
boys and girls from infancy up. With its own 
dining rooms and special diet kitchens, playrooms 
and other facilities, this wnll be without doubt the 
finest children's tuberculosis department in the 
world. The fourth floor will contain solaria and 
what are expected to be the finest surgical tuber- 
'culosis operating rooms anywhere. 

The new^ Washington Boulevard Dispensary 
Building, located at 2049 Washington boulevard, 
replaces the old Ashland Avenue Dispensary. This 
new building is w^ell located and gives unexcelled 
quarters for dispensary activities. By taking ad- 
vantage of an unusual opportunity, the building 
w^as purchased at a fraction of its real value. 

Vocational Schools. 

The vocational schools, wherein a variety of 
trades and occupations are taught to convalescent 
patients, equipping many of them for a better 
position in life than they had when they came to 
the Sanitarium, have been maintained at highest 
efficiency. The various departments of the voca- 
tional school are not only of value in teaching 
trades and occupations but also contribute much 
to patients' physical advancement by keeping them 
occupied and giving them exercise. 

The wisdom of maintaining the Sanitarium upon 
the most scientific basis is proving itself. The 
death rate from tuberculosis in Chicago is con- 
stantly decreasing. The task now is to carry on, 
with necessary expansion and improvement, until 
all patients may be cared for immediately upon 
discovery, with the ultimate aim of completely 
eliminating tuberculosis in the City of Chicago 
and the conditions which produce it. 



Department of Public Welfare. 

Two reports were issued by the Department's 
Bureau of Social Surveys early in the year, one on 
"The Cost and Use of Ice in Families with Chil- 
dren" and one on "Living Conditions for Small- 
Wage Earners in Chicago". The latter publication, 
which has to do quite largely with the housing 
accommodations available for families of modest 
or low incomes, was made the basis of an all-day 
conference on housing, held April 16, 1926. This 
conference brought together the different groups 
concerned in the actual production of houses as 
well as the social, philanthropic, and civic agencies 
interested in improving living conditions for Chi- 
cago's less prosperous citizens. Successful build- 
ing projects in other cities which have brought 
new construction down within reach of the better 
paid workman were presented and discussed with 
reference to the situation in Chicago. 

The conference at its closing session adopted a 
resolution calling for the creation of a Housing 
Commission in Chicago to study further into the 
housing needs of that greater proportion of our 
city's population which can afford only a modest 
rental and find, if possible, practical ways of meet- 
ing their demands for good homes in which to 
live and rear their children. Your honorable body 
acquiesced in this recommendation and authorized 
the formation of such a commission, the members 
being appointed on July 8, 1926. 

The Bureau of Social Surveys has under way an 
inquiry into present provision for the care of the 
aged in Chicago. 

A report on the conditions and needs of some 
500 unemployed men interviewed at the Municipal 
Lodging House last winter is also under prepa- 
ration. 

In the vicinity of West Madison street from Ash- 
land avenue 'to the river is situated the Municipal 
Lodging House and the Men's Service Station of 
the Department of Public Welfare, both of w-hich 
are increasing in usefulness and becoming more 
widely used every day. The Men's Service Station 
is the one place in this great city to which men 
are sent from other institutions, or come of their 
own free will, to make themselves sanitarily clean 
without expense. During the three mid-winter 
months while the lodging house was open, food 
and shelter were given to 4,607 men. By the splen- 
did co-operation of physicians from the County 
and the Department of Health, 1,397 ailing men 
were diagnosed, 657 were sent to hospitals, and 
153 were sent to institutions for more permanent 
care. Four hundred and ninety-seven men were 
sent to positions found to be open. 

The outstanding work of the year was in the 
systematic case work of upwards of 500 men whose 
state of health, handicaps or peculiar circum- 
stances called for careful diagnosis. With this 
peculiarly difficult class efforts were made to elicit 
by conversation, correspondence, and investigation 
the special facts in each case which would aid in 
assisting them to secure a better chance for main- 
taining themselves. Many such were definitely, if 
perhaps only temporarily, placed in industry or in 
institutions where there would be opportunities 
for regaining mental or physical health.

out the loop and to most of the congested inter- 
sections in the City. These are now 170 safety 
zones in operation, including 10 loading platforms 
at points where boarding and alighting from street 
cars is extremely hazardous. 

The bureau is at present engaged in a survey of 
congested street car line intersections outside the

complaints are of a varied nature ranging from gas 
main extensions and the securing of gas service 
to matters of rates and overcharges on monthly 
gas bills. With very few exceptions these com- 
plaints are adjusted and explained to the satis-

. A complete electrical testing laboratory, contain- 
ing primary standards calibrated by the Bureau of 
Standards, Washington, D. C, and secondary 
standards for making field or complaint tests, is 
maintained by this bureau. In conducting this 
lahoratory it is necessary to make periodic tests 
and calibrations of the secondary standards and 
during the past year 75 instrument tests of this 
kind were made. 

This bureau is required to enforce the ordinance 
regarding the use of electric meters by private 
sellers, private plant operators or jobbers of elec- 
trical energy, and to test, calibrate and seal all 
such meters in use. To carry on this function it 
is necessary to make investigations to locate vio- 
lations and to gather data covering such plants 
and meters. The following data shows the results 
accomplished in this line:

mot,ers removed and tested upon complaint of the 
consumer, 80 meters were found correct, 60 were 
found to be registering more than 2% fast, and 15 
registering more than 2% slow. 

In the testing of consumer's meters of all sizes a 
total of 139,588 have been examined in the past 
year, and of this number 1,200 have been rejected 
for inaccurate measurement of gas, or a total of 
about seven-eighths of one per cent. 

Daily heating value tests have been conducted 
at the four City gas testing laboratories. 

The Telephone Bureau has in addition to its 
regular work submitted a report on telephone 
service to the Law Department, and is at present 
engaged in the preparation of a report for your 
honorable body on the same subject. 

This bureau has also been active in the move- 
ment to restore underground pneumatic tube serv- 
ice for the transmittal of first-class mail. 

The Electrical Bureau has been active during the

Department op Buildings. 

The statistics of this department for the period 
covered by this report present one outstanding 
feature; namely— the tremendous increase in the 
erection of large office buildings, the records indi- 
cating that in no other similar period in the his- 
tory of Chicago has it been equalled. Likewise in- 
creases over the prior year are noted in permits 
for the erection of manufacturing buildings and 
additions to existing manufacturing plants. 

In the construction of single-family houses, small 
flat buildings and apartment buildings there has 
been a falling off in permits.

The zoning ordinance, effective at about the time 
of the advent of this administration, has produced 
most beneficial results and the tendency of archi- 
tects, contractors, builders and owners to co- 
operate and conform to this restrictive ordinance 
is very gratifying. One of the principal difficulties 
encountered in the enforcement of this ordinance 
is the tenacious refusal of certain retail merchants 
to vacate stores located in new and existing build- 
ings in residence zones. These violations can only 
be eradicated by persistent prosecutions.

Department of Gas and Electricity. 

Since October 1, 1925, there has been cut into ser- 
vice 9,000 additional electric street lighting units 
of various types, which brings the total number of 
electric street lighting units in the municipal sys- 
tem up to 71,487. At the start of the present ad- 
ministration there were in operation 55,862 lights, 
the addition of 15,525 lights in the past three years 
representing an increase of approximately 30% in 
the number of units in the system, or the lighting 
up of about 35 square miles of territory. This re- 
cent addition to our municipal street lighting sys- 
tem would provide a first class, up-lo-date, modern 
electric street lighting system that would light every 
street in a city the size of Kansas City. This work 
has all been financed from the proceeds of bond 
issues voted at various times in the past 31/2 years 
totalling approximately $4,000,000.00. 

The department at the present date has com- 
pleted plans for the 1926 extensions to the Muni- 
cipal Street Lighting System which are to be fi- 
nanced by the bond issue of $2,000,000.00 voted at 
the spring election. These plans call for lighting 
up 166 lineal miles of streets in the residential 
districts and reinforcing the lighting of many im- 
portant thoroughfares such as Broadway, Indiana- 
polis boulevard, South Western avenue and Cottage 
Grove avenue. The plans also provide for the re- 
habilitation of the Byron, Wabansia and 22nd street 



Districts and the reinforcing of the lighting in those 
Sub-station Districts particularly at the alleys. 

In the past twelve months some of the defective 
units of our existing system have been corrected. 
The Wentworth Avenue Sub-station and the Rice 
and Lincoln Sub-station have been completely re- 
habilitated. Equipment that heretofore had been 
the source of considerable trouble to the depart- 
ment and presented more or less of a menace to the 
public has been put in first class condition both 
from a construction and operating standpoint. 

Subtvaij Lighting. 

There are in the City of Chicago 781 subways, 
the lighting of which the department supervises 
and patrols. 365 are lighted at the City's expense 
the balance at the expense of the railroads. In 
the past year the lights in these subways have been 
put in first class shape by the Department's own 
maintenance and construction forces, and fhe light- 
ing has been greatly improved by substituting 60 
watt for 25 watt lights. In many cases the de- 
partment has succeeded in influencing the railroa-d 
companies to increase the size of lamps in their 
subways over minimum ordinance requirements. 
This department has also succeeded in getting the 
railroad companies to properly mark the center 
columns of all subways and to illuminate them in 
accordance with a design of signal unit that the 
department has adopted and which has proven very 
effective in eliminating accidents from this source. 

Fire Alarm and Police Telegraph Protection. 

Fifty-five fire alarm and police telegraph boxes 
have been added to the system in the past year, 
principally in the outlying districts. Attention has 
been directed to the relieving of over-loaded circuit 
conditions, which will greatly improve the fire alarm 
and police telegraph service. It is also proposed 
during the year to install 60 to 75 additional fire 
alarm and police boxes and make certain much 
needed improvements in the Central and Englewood 
operating offices. 

Traffic Control Equipment Installation. 

The outstanding accomplishment of the depart- 
ment has been the cutting into service on February 
8, 1926, of traffic control equipment that has been 
installed at 49 intersections within the loop area, 
and which is operated from the master control sta- 
tion located in the basement of the City Hall. It 
has now been in continuous service for 8 months, 
and has given entire satisfaction. The improvement 
that has been brought about in the regulating of 
the traffic has already more than justified the cost 
of installing the automatic signal system. 

Along with the loop trafflic control installation the 
Department succeeded in cutting into service a total 
of 84 traffic signal lights at intersections in the out- 



4560

lying, districts where traffic conditions warranted 
the installation of automatic trafTic control equip- 
ment. 

There has been made available this year $250,- 
000.00 for the further extension of the traffip con- 
trol system, and it is anticipated that with this mon- 
ey approximately 100 additional intersections can 
be cared for. The prog-ram tentatively laid out 
calls for certain progressive timing systems on our 
heavily trafilced thoroughfares, and also contem- 
plates the extension of the present loop system to 
care for the intersections at Harrison and State 
streets, Harrison street and Wabash avenue, Con- 
gress street and Wabash avenue, and Congress and 
State streets. This program is being rushed to 
completion, and it is expected that the entire in- 
stallation will be completed the early part of 1927. 

Electrical Inspection Bureau. 

The total number of permits issued by the Bu- 
reau of Electrical Inspection covering its various 
activities will approximately 64,400. 

There has been a slight decrease in the number 
of permits issued for interior wiring installations, 
which total 49,000. This decrease is due principal- 
ly, to a slowing down in the building industry this 
year. It is interesting to note in this connection 
that although the number of electrical circuits and 
lamps installed has decreased in approximate pro- 
portion to the number of permits, the total horse- 
power of the motor installation has increased in 
excess of '50,000, or about 70% over the total for 
the year ended October 1, 1925. The number of 
interior wiring permits held in the open files for 
final approval has been reduced from 25,000 to 
18,000 (or 28%), which has resulted in an ap- 
preciable improvement in the promptness and ef- 
ficiency of inspection service. 

In the other branches of the work of this bureau 
the number of permits issued approximate very 
closely the 1925 figure. Outside permits covering 
electrical work done by public utilities in streets 
and alleys number 8,900; sign installation permits 
total 4,200; and miscellaneous permits 2,30'0'. In- 
cluded in the total of sign permits are 700 permits 
issued to cover sign installations originally made 
without a permit. These cases were discovered by 
the sign reinspection division. 

Department of Weights and Measures. 

The number of inspections and tests made by 
this department is shown in the following tabula- 
tion: 



Scales, measures and weighing machines. 
Pumps and automatic measuring devices. 
Taximeters 



89.448 

11,728 

8,394 



Total 109,570 

8,257 stores and places of business were visited 
by inspectors, resulting in the instituting of suits 
for violations of weights and measures provisions 
as contained in The Chicago Municipal Code of 1922, 
bringing about the imposition of $2,515.00 in fines 
in 550 cases. In addition, inspection fees collected 
by this department amounted to $74,799.05. 

Recent amendments to our ordinances and sta- 
tutes affecting the reweighing of coal loads, liquid 
measuring devices, and a change in the methods of 
measurement of sand, gravel and crushed stone, 
have increased the effectiveness of this department. 



Department for the Inspection of Steam Boilers, 
Steam and Cooling Plants. 

This department is self-sustaining, showing sur- 
plus of $17,505.96 for the past twelve months over 
the total operating cost for the inspection of high 
and low pressure steam boilers, tanks, kettles and 
cooling units, including the issuance of permits for 
new installations. 

The rigidity and constancy of inspections is mani- 
fest by the record established which shows no loss 
of life, injury to persons or damage to property 
during the last year attributable to boiler ex- 
plosions. 

Inspector of Oils. 

The inspection of 4,767,189 barrels of oil by this 
department brought in a revenue to the city of 
$286,033.14. This total exceeded the income over 
the previous twelve months by $30,350.16. 

City Collector. 

Despite the fact that the city's right to license 
certain classes of business has been denied by the 
Supreme Court and this has resulted in a reduc- 
tion of revenue from these sources, this office has 
offset these losses by concentrating its efforts in the 
collection of license fees from sources where the 
City's right to license is unquestionable, with the 
result that the average of last year's income has 
been equalled, viz: 

12 months ending December 31, 1925. $3, 504,054.75 
9 months ending September 30, 1926. 3,300,955.93 

Vehicle Tax Division. 

With the ever increasing number of vehicles 
operating on our streets, the work of issuing vehicle 
licenses increases, as does the amount of revenue 
from this source. The present ordinances require 
the sending of a notice and application to each li- 
censee upon the expiration date of the current li- 
cense and this involves a task of addressing and 
mailing 400,000 such notices. Quite a proportion 
respond by mailing their returns which greatly re- 
lieves the crowded conditions which prevail in the 
offilce at the renewal periods. 

Warrants for Collection. 

This division of the office collects a variety of 
funds, as enumerated hereafter. The greater 
amount is collected under collection warrants and, 
anticipating the collection under this heading during 
the next three months of an amount equal to that 
collected during the same three months last year, 
there will be approximately the same amount col- 
lected this year as last. Under the heading of "De- 
posits" there will be somewhat of a loss due to the 
fact that about $600,000.00 was deposited in October 
last year in connection with the bridge at Roosevelt 
Road, which amount will eventually go into the 
Corporate Fund. Aside from this the amount of 
Deposits will be about the same as last year, made 
up of small deposits. Under Street Railway Reve- 
nue there has already been collected a half-million 
dollars more than the amount collected from the 
same source last year. 

The following are comparative figures :

Special Assessment Division. 

The work performed by this office in connection 
with the collection of special assessments assumes 
greater proportions each year. 

The proportion of the amount due that is re- 
turned delinquent because of non-payment is much 
less since this department instituted the practice 
of collecting assessments up to the month of July, 
rather than to the month of March. The total of 
assessments paid between March and July each year 
is considerable and the City by collecting this 
amount saves 1% of it w^hich would be allowed the 
County were such collection made by the County 
Collector. 
Licence Department. 

The amount of revenue collected through the 
License Department for the first nine months of 
1926 as compared with the same period during 1925, 
shows an increase in the collection of vehicle license 
fees of $303,125.50. In general licenses, however, 
the number issued is 287 less than last year, with a 
decrease in the amount collected of $8,397.50.

Department of Compensation. 

The total revenue derived for the first nine months 
of 1926, ending September 30th, amounted to $574, 
201.87, derived from such special privileges as 
switch tracks, canopies, bridges, tunnels, vaults, 
loading platforms, conduits, pipes, etc. and from 
the vacation of streets and alleys. 

The greater part of this amount is derived from 
the vacation of parts of streets and alleys, and great 
care is taken by this Department that full values 
are paid to the city and that no vacations are made 
where there is any possibility of future use. Where 
there is a remote possibility that such property may 



be so needed, the city has protected itself by re- 
serving a right of repurchase at the same amount 
as paid to the city. 

Department of Supplies. 

A total expenditure of $3,098,400.0O represent- 
ing 49 400 purchase orders briefly reflects the work 
of the purchasing agent of the City. This averages 
$62.72 per order as compared with $62.66 per order 
for the calendar year of 1925. 

'Municipal Reference Library. 

The Municipal Reference Library on October 1, 
1925, contained 106,395 books and pamphlets. 
There were added to the Library during the twelve 
months period from October 1, 1925 to September 
30, 1926, 4,599 books and pamphlets. 

The total number of books and pamphlets on file 
on September 30, 1926 was 110,994. There are re- 
ceived regularly the current proceedings of the city 
councils or boards of aldermen of 47 large cities, 
272 general publications of a periodical nature, and 
165 magazines on health and sanitation. Practically 
the entire collection of books and pamphlets, as 
well as periodical literature, on file in the Muni- 
cipal Reference Library relates to municipal govern- 
ment, municipal problems, and municipal adminis- 
tration and legislation. 

During the 12 month period indicated above the 
.Municipal Reference Library had 16,326 visitors 
and 5,970 telephone requests for information. The 
Library distributed free 15,048 municipal docu- 
ments — mainly consisting of duplicate annual and 
special reports of municipal departments and bu- 
reaus. 12,845 books and pamphlets were used for 
reference purposes by city officials, city employes 
and the general public. 

931 requests were received from members of the 
City Council, its various committees, sub-commit- 
tees and special commissions. 1861 requests were 
received from 33 municipal departments, boards and 
commissions. 249 requests were received from var- 
ious departments of the County, Sanitary and Park 
districts, the State and United States governments, 
and 3,744 requests from miscellaneous sources. 

The City Council on July 2, 1923, passed an ordi- 
nance providing for the sale and distribution at 
cost of documents and publications of the City of 
Chicago by the Municipal Reference Library. Dur- 
ing the past year the sum of $2,161.00 has been 
realized from the sale of municipal publications 
which have been placed on sale in the library. 
The editions of the fire prevention and plumbing 
codes were exhausted during the past year, and the 
pamphlet editions of the building and water ordi- 
nances will likewise be exhausted at the close of 
1926. 

Inquiries of citizens concerning the operation of 
the municipal government have received careful at- 
tention. 

Intelligent understanding of municipal adminis- 
tration and legislation has been aided and encour- 
aged by treating inquirers not as objectors but as 
searchers after information, and the Library has 
promptly answered all questions. 

The following brief review of the accomplish- 
ments of the Municipal Reference Library shows the 
versatility of its work and its power and utility in 
the furtherance of efficient administration and legis- 
lation.

leisure time recreation, amusements and instruc- 
tion in American cities was completed. The report 
was the result of an intensive inquiry into the sub- 
ject, and i)articular emphasis was placed upon ex- 
isting facilities for cultural leisure time recreation. 
It is based upon information contained in replies 
received from parks, school and other city offiicials 
in cities in the United States having- a population 
of over 30,000, the annual reports of municipal 
park, playground and recreation departments and 
boards of education, in city council proceedings, 
and in books, pamphlets, periodicals and similar 
sources. 

A report was prepared outlining a plan of proced- 
ure for better publicity regarding the day by day 
work of city departments. The plan proposed urged 
the creation of a central clearing office for news 
regarding city business, as a means of educational 
or informational publicity. 

At the request of your Committee, on Judiciary 
a report was prepared on methods adopted in Amer- 
ican cities providing for the electrification of steam 
railroads as the result of municipal ordinances or 
state laws or by the voluntary action of the steam 
railroads. 

A compilation of laws and ordinances in effect in 
cities in the United States providing that subdivi- 
sions of large tracts of land shall not be accepted, 
approved or recorded by public officials unless in 
such subdivisions reservations are made for public 
parks, playgrounds and similar recreation purposes, 
was prepared at the request of the same Commit- 
tee. 

Statistics were prepared for the use of the Chi- 
cago and Cook County Citizens' Committee for Pop- 
ular Representation, appointed for the purpose of 
obtaining the redistricting of Illinois senatorial dis- 
tricts upon the basis of population, comparing the 
population of senatorial districts outside of Cook 
County for the years 1920, 1910 and 1900. 

Information was collected and compiled relating 
to the authority and administration of the 38 park 
districts in Cook County. 

The Library co-operated with the Commissioner 
of Public Works in compiling, for the American 
Association of Port Authorities, a bibliography of 
publications on file in the Municipal Reference Li- 
brary relating to the Chicago harbor problem and 
allied topics, including publications relating to the 
Sanitary District of Chicago. 

An inquiry was made into the subject of branch 
public libraries maintained in public school build- 
ing in other cities, particularly in junior high 
schools. 

Concluding this, my fourth annual report. I de- 
sire to express my sincere appreciation of the valu- 
able assistance and loyal co-operation which I have 
received during the last three and a half years from 
the heads of the various municipal departments, 
bureaus and divisions of the city government. 

I congratulate your Honorable Body upon the 
passage of an ordinance insuring an adequate sup- 
ply of pure milk for Chicago; an ordinance permit- 
ting the free use of hollow clay tile in building con- 
struction; the ordinance providing for the straight- 
ening of the Chicago River, and the ordinance au- 
thorizing scientific studies of our traffic and harbor 
problems. I desire particularly to thank the mem- 
bers of your Honorable Body for your full and prompt 
co-operation in considering and passing all ordi- 
nances and orders necessary or incidental to the 



progress or completion of the major undertakings 
of the various City Departments.

Report of N(nv.spaper iniblieations of Ordinances. 

The City Clerk submitted the following neport, which 
was ordered published and placed on file: 

Office of the City Clerk,]

Departmental and City Comptroller's Estimates for the 
Year 19217. 

The City Clerk presented the following communica- 
tion, which was, together with the estimates submitted 
therewith, referred to the Committee on Finance: 

Department of Finance,) 
Chicago, October 27, 1926.] 

To the Honorable, the Mayor, and Aldermen in City 
Council Assembled: 

Gentlemen — In accordance with the requirements 
of Section 43 of The Chicago Municipal Code of 1922, 
I have the honor to submit herewith, in detail, esti- 
mates of the appropriations which will be neces- 
sary to defray the expense of City government dur- 
ing the fiscal year of 1927; also a statement showing 
estimate resources available for the year 1927 from 
all sources; also the sum of liabilities outstanding 
upon which interest is to be paid and a statement 
showing the bonds and the City debts payable dur- 
ing the year 1927 : 

Summary of Corporate Fund Estimates 
- Comptroller's Estimate of Appropria- 
tions for 1927 $54,403,914.61 

Less 3% Salvage 1,632,117.44

penditure for 1927 $52,771,797.17

tions for 1927 $15,883,350.09 

Less Salvage 1,450,000.00 

Comptroller's Estimate of Net Ex- 
penditures for 1927 $14,433,350.09 

Comptroller's Estimate of Resources 
available for appropriations for 
1927 $14,461,801.14 

Summary of Vehicle Tax Fund 

Comptroller's Estimate of Resources 
for 1927, available for appropria- 
tions •$ 4,886,686.20 

Comptroller's Estimate of Appropria- 
tions for 1927 4,879,515.00 

The apparent increase of appropriations I recom- 
mend for 1927 over appropriations recommended 
for the year 1926 is made up, in a large part, of 
salary increases for the clerical employes, technical 
employes and the uniformed force of the Police and 
Fire Departments. The increase of $300.00 each 
per annum recommended for the uniformed force 
of Police and Fire Departments amounts to $2,435,- 
400.00 alone. 

It will be conceded, I believe, that the increase 
over the 1926 budget is warranted by every con- 
sideration of fair play to those thousands of hard 
w^orking city employes who have served the City 
loyally under wage conditions disadvantageous to 
themselves. 

The Comptroller rejoices in this opportunity to 
do his share towards lightening the burdens, which 
have been imposed upon them since the war, by 
inadequate salaries. 

I would like to state here, that in my judgment 
the department heads, in making up their estimates, 
were extremely conservative. They endeavored to 
eliminate every item of expense which, in their 
judgment, could be dispensed with. Apparently 
they appreciated the fact that, under our present 
archaic taxing system, it would be useless to rely 
upon a hope that there would be sufficient revenue 
to meet all of their requirements. 

It, nevertheless, was my unpleasant duty to pare 
departmental estimates almost to the bone."^ 

Demands for money for street and alley cleaning 
have been ceaseless during the past year. 

It will be noted that I have provided approxi- 
mately $1,000,000.00 more for street cleaning pur- 
poses, than was recommended by me in the 1926 
budget. 

People want clean alleys and clean streets, and 
in so far as it is humanly possible, they ought to 
have them. 

I recommend the Fire Department's request for 
100 additional firemen. 

In the present state of Chicago's finances, it does 
not appear that we can spare a larger sum than 
$500,000.00 for disposing of the item of judgments 
against the City notwithstanding that every con- 
sideration of good business would seem to demand 
that we rid ourselves of that burden at the earliest 
possible moment. 

Payment of Public Benefits has been provided for 
by a recommended appropriation of $470,000.00.

JOURNAL— CITY COUNCIL. 



November 3, 1926. 



The estimates also provide for the establish- 
ment of a separate audit and eiricioncy bureau, 
under the Comptroller. 

This I deem to be a very important change in the 
City's method of doing business. It also complies 
with sound principles of good business found es- 
sential by all modern business executives of large 
corporations. 

After thoughtful consideration and study of all 
the facts surrounding our present method of ac- 
counting and supervision over the receipt and ex- 
penditure of the public's money, we reached the 
conclusive that our existing system of auditing 
lacked the essential detail of frequent intimate con- 
tact with the business transactions of other city 
departments and their bureaus. 

1&27 is the year the quadrennial revaluation of 
all property will be undertaken by the Board of 
Assessors and the Board of Review. 

The Comptroller's Estimate of Revenue is based 
upon the prospective normal increase in assessed 
valuations for 1927, as in 1923 (the last quadren- 
nial revaluation) assessed valuations showed an in- 
crease of more than $122,000,000.00 over the year 
previous. In this estimate we have conservatively 
estimated that the 1927 quadrennial increase would 
be at least $90,000,000.00. 

A year ago, I called your attention to the relation 
between Chicago's Corporate Fund and the Munici- 
pal Court. The City Council exercises no control 
over the financial policy of the Municipal Court. 
Judges ma:ke their own budgets, they control their 
own expenditures and those of the Municipal Court 
Clerk and Bailiff. That, I think, is not good busi- 
ness, because neither the Comptroller nor the City 
Council possess authority to determine the actual 
needs of the Court. 

I believe it would be better if the legislature 
would establish the Municipal Court as a separate 
taxing body; it could then be held accountable di- 
rectly to the tax-payer for the management of its 
finances, — or, if this suggestion is not concurred in, 
then in all fairness and as a matter of equity to 
other City departn^ents the Municipal Courts with 
its Clerks' and Bailiffs' Office should have their fi- 
nances placed under the full control of the City 
Council. 

Existing conditions cause City government to cur- 
tail in other City functions that have not the same 
power to demand funds as the Municipal Courts, 
thereby creating an inequitable condition in favor 
of this governmental body. 

I submit for your consideration the conclusion 
that a separate tax rate for the Municipal Courts 
does not mean an increase of the present aggre- 
gate tax rate, as such action would require only an 
adjustment of same.

DEPARTMENT OF LAW. 



Lease of Certain Property of the Board of Education 
for Park Purposea 

The City Clerk presented the following communica- 
tion, which was, together with the communications 



and the ordinance transmitted therewith, referred to 
tho Committee on City Planning, Parks and Athletics: 

Department of Law,| 
Chicago, November 3, 1926. J 

To the Honorable, the City Council of the City of 
Chicago: 

Gentlemen — ^The construction of the Cicero ave- 
nue sewer in the southwestern part of the City was 
authorized by a local improvement ordinance passed 
by your Honorable Body, and has proceeded so far 
that the assessment roll is before the court for 
confirmation. 

The total amount of the assessment to be spread 
is $7 40,000'. 00. Of this amount $140,711.20 Ihas 
been levied against the property of the Board of 
Education described as Section 16, Township 38 
North, Range 13, East of the Third Principal Meri- 
dian, being the square mile bounded by 55th and 
63rd street and Cicero and Central avenue. Ob- 
jections have been filed by attorneys representing 
various interests, to the extent of $211,820.00', of 
which the School Board's objection to the whole 
sum assessed against it forms the major part. 

The basis of the refusal of the Board of Educa- 
tion to pay such an assessment is that the courts 
have held that land in a school section (Section 16) 
which is owned by the public for school purposes 
is not subject to special assessment, and that inas- 
much as the policy of the City Council is against 
the sale of the land, and it is not revenue producing, 
the Board of Education has taken the position that 
it should not be called upon to pay an assessment. 
The land at present is used for truck farming under 
temporary leases which can be readily revoked. 
Aside from that the only use which the land is put 
to at present is that a portion of it has been leased 
to the City as an aviation field and another part is 
opened as a public golf course. 

In as much as the dropping of the assessment 
against the whole section would amount to a total 
loss to the City, a proposition was made to the 
school authorities by which the City could get some 
return for the cost of the improvement by being 
given a lease of the northeast quarter of this school 
section for park purposes. The site is three miles 
from Marquette Park and five miles from M.cKinley 
Park, and is in the heart of what is destined to be 
in the near feature, as soon as it is made accessible 
by transportation facilities, a populous district 
where the need of such a park will be great. The 
late President of the Board, Col. Ellicott, before his 
death expressed himself as very much in favor of 
the project. 

Having this in view, the matter has been fully in- 
vestigated on behalf of the City. The Commissioner 
of Public Works has taken an active interest in it 
and has urged the carrying out of the idea. The 
Superintendent of Parks and Playgrounds, the Su- 
perintendent of Streets, the Superintendent of Maps, 
and all other heads of bureaus of the Department 
of Public Works interested therein have expressed 
themselves as satisfied of the feasibility and de- 
sirability of the plan. A copy of a communication 
from the Secretary of the Bureau of Parks, Play- 
grounds and Beaches to the Commissioner and a 
letter from the Commissioner concurring therein is 
hereto attached. It has been taken up with other 
officers of the School Board, and there seems to 
be general acquiescense on their part, subject only 
to the reservation of the right to cancel the lease 
if the property should he required in the future for

school purposes. The Chicago Plan Commission has 
voiced its unqualified indorsement of the project, 
and has addressed a letter to His Honor the Mayor 
and to your Honorable Body, of which a copy is for- 
warded herewith. 

A tentative draft of a lease was submitted to the 
attorney of the Board of Education, and he has 
agreed that it is in proper form to be placed before 
the Board of Education and the City Council, re- 
spectively, for approval. When it is considered how 
rapidly the southwestern part of the City has de- 
veloped in recent years, a glance into the future 
will convince almost any one of the desirability 
of the proposed park. 

A draft of an ordinance authorizing the making 
of the lease is therefore sent herewith for the con- 
sideration of your Honorable Body. While we have 
taken the initiative, we await further action on the 
part of the City Council or one of its committees 
before presenting the proposed lease to the Board 
of Education.

Department of Public Works,] 

Bureau of Rivers and Harbors,!- 

Chicago, October 8, 1926.J 

To the Honorable, the Mayor and the City Council, 
City of Chicago, Ulinois: 

Gentlemen — In compliance with Section 5 of the 
ordinance enlarging the duties of Harbor Master to 
include supervision of the Municipal Pier, passed 
December 30, 1925, C. J. page 2041, herewith is 
transmitted a report of the operation of the Pier 
together with other harbor revenue for the month 
of September, 1926. 

It will be noted in the attached report that the 
revenue of the Pier for the month of September 
was $19,860.60 as compared with $14,634.46 for the 
corresponding month of the previous year, an in- 
crease of $5,226.14, which was caused by the com- 
mercial space rental revenue being almost doubled 
the past month over last year. 

The expense of operation and maintenance was 
$19,356.93 last month, an increase of $4,681.33 over 
the same period of the previous year. This was 
mostly due to increased salary costs of the present 
year. 

During the month of September the American 
Society for Steel Treating held a national steel and 
machine tool exposition in the exhibition space on 
the Pier, which was a big success, having an esti- 
mated attendance of 160,000 persons during the 
week of the 20th to the 25th, when it was open to 
the public. This exposition utilized 153,680 square

force being- used for vacation relief work and in 
the extraction plant. 

The net. cost of operation of the Municipal Re- 
duction Plant, including repairs and the disposal of 
rubbish, durinq- the month of September was $35,- 
435.72, as compared with $24,722.6-4 for the cor- 
res^ponding month of 1925. showing an increase of 
$10,713.08. This increase in operating cost is 
accounted for by an increase of $4,340.81 in 
safaries and wages, au increase of $2,873.10 in the 
cost of rubbish removal and disposal, together with 
a decrease of $3,079.50 in revenue, as compared 
with the same month of last year. 

The increases in the expense for salaries and 
wages and for rubbish disposal are partly due to 
the^ installation of the trailer system in the hauling 
of garbage to the reduction plant, which has re- 
sult'ed in a greater amount of degi^eased garbage 
and has made it necessary to work ten-hour shifts 
part of the time in order to dispose of the garbage 
as fast as it was delivered. The decrease in 
revenue was due to a decrease in the market value 
of garbage grease, the present contract price being 
$6.09 per cwt. as compared with a price of $6.59 
per cwt. during the same period of last year.

BOARD OF LOCAL IMPROVEMENTS. 



In the Matter of the Opening of N. Austin Av. from 
Armitage Av. to W. North Av. 

The City Clerk presented the following communica- 
tion, which was, together with the order transmitted 
therewith, referred to the Committee on Finance: 

Board of Logal Improvements, 
Chicago, October 16, 1926. 

Hon. Wm. E. Dever, Mayor, and Members of the 
City Council: 

Gentlemen — I am returning herewith Council 
order for opening Austin avenue from Armitage 
av'inue to North avenue, which has been considered 
by the Board of Local Improvements. 

Our Engineer reports that this improvement 
would necessitate elevating the tracks of the 
C, M. & St. P. R. R., involving a very long subway 
under them, and that its cost w-ould approximate 



$1,000,000.00; that it would be of comparatively 
little benefit to the neighboring property although 
of importance to the general public. It is doubtful 
if a special assessment could be confirmed for such 
an improvement, since it partakes more of the 
nature of a general improvement than a local im- 
provement. 

If such a subway is built it would doubtless have 
to be done as a result of the track elevation ordi- 
nance passed by the City Council and accepted by 
the railroad company. 

Very truly yours, 

(Signed) Edward J. Glackin, 

Secretary.

Hon. Wm. E. Dever, Mayor, and Members of the 

City Council: 

Gentlemen — I am returning herewith Council 
order for opening Kedzie avenue from 67th street 
to 71st street, which has been considered by the 
Board of Local Improvements. 

This street was vacated many years ago to form 
a part of Marquette Park, and it is not likely that 
the South Park Commissioners would consent to its 
being opened. 

If the street is to be opened it should be as a 
result of a contract between the City of Chicago 
and the South Park Commissioners. 

Very truly yours,

the purpose of this ordinance, levigated limestone, 
other levigated stone equivalent to levigated lime- 
stone for paving purposes, Portland cement or the 
finely divided mineral matter self-contained in the 
refined native solid asphalt. 

The refined asphalt used in making the asphalt 
cement for the mixture for the binder course and 
the mixture for the wearing course shall be obtained 
from crude, native solid asphalt, except as herein 
provided. If crude, native solid asphalt is used and 
requires refining, it shall be heated to a tempera- 
ture of not over four hundred fifty (450) degrees 
Fahrenheit until all water and light oils have been 
driven off. At least ninety-eight and one-half 
(98 Vo) per cent of the bitumen contained in the said 
refined asphalt which is soluble in carbon disulphide 
shall be soluble in cold carbon tetra chloride. 

The refined asphalt used in making said asphalt 
cement may also be obtained by the straight reduc- 
tion of asphaltic petroleum until the refined asphalt 
has a consistency not softer than seven (7) milli- 
meters penetration and not harder than two and 
one-half (2%) millimeters penetration, the pene- 
tration being made with a No. 2 needle, weighted 
with one hundred (100) grams acting for five (5) 
seconds on the material at a temperature of sev- 
enty-seven (77) degrees Fahrenheit. Ninety-eight 
and one-half (98 M>) per cent of the said refined 
asphalt, so obtained, shall be soluble in cold carbon 
tetra chloride. When fifty (50) grams of said re- 
fined asphalt is heated in an uncovered tin box five 
and one-half (5%) centimeters in diameter and 
three and one-half (3%) centimeters in depth and 
is held at a temperature of three hundred twenty- 
five (325) degrees Fahrenheit for five (5) hours, 
then it shall have lost not over two (2) per cent 
by weight and the penetration of the residue thus 
olDtained shall be not less than one-half (%) of the 



penetration before such heating, said penetration 
being determined as herein prescribed. The said 
refined asphalt shall have a ductility of not less than 
sixty (60) centimeters at five (5) millimeters pene- 
tration determined as herein prescribed, said duc- 
tility being determined by elongating a briquette, 
Dow form, of said refined asphalt at a uniform rate 
of five (5) centimeters per minute at a temperature 
of seveni,y-seven (77) degrees Fahrenheit. 

The llux used in making the asphalt cement shall 
be the residuum obtained by the straight reduction 
of crude petroleum, which flux shall be tested with 
and found suitable to the refined asphalt to be used. 
At least ninety-nine (99) per cent of said flux shall 
be soluble in cold carbon tetra chloride. The flux 
shall have a specific gravity of not less than ninety- 
four one-hundredths (.9.4) and not more than one 
and ten one-hundredths (1.10) at seventy-seven (77) 
degrees Fahrenheit as compared with water at sov- 
enty-seven (77) degrees Fahrenheit, and when 
tested in a Cleveland Open Cup Oil Tester, it shall 
not flash below a temperature of three hundred 
eighty (380) degrees Fahrenheit; and when fifty 
(50) grams of the said flux is heated in an uncov- 
ered tin box five and one-half (5^/2) centimeters in 
diameter and three and one-half (3 ¥2) centimeters 
in depth and is held at a temperature of three hun- 
dred twenty-five (325) degrees Fahrenheit for five 
(5) hours, then it shall not have lost over three (3) 
per' cent by weight. The flux shall have a pene- 
tration of not less than thirty-five (35) millimeters, 
the penetration being made with a No. 2 needle 
weighted with fifty (50) grams acting for one (1) 
second, the material being tested at seventy-seven 
(77) degrees Fahrenheit. 

The asphalt cement used in the binder course 
and in the wearing course shall be made from one 
(1) of said refined asphalts or from a mixture of 
any two of said refined asphalts and said flux, if 
flux must be used, provided that the mixture of 
refined asphalts shall contain equal parts of each 
of the refined asphalts; and that the said asphalt 
cement shall contain not less than sixty (60) per 
cent by weight of refined asphalt or asphalts. The 
said asphalt cement shall be made by mixing and 
heating the said refined asphalt or asphalts and the 
said flux in a kettle at a temperature not lower 
than two hundred fifty (250) degrees Fahrenheit 
and not higher than three hundred fifty (350) de- 
grees Fahrenheit. This mixture shall be thoroughly 
agitated when hot by steam, air or mechanical 
means until the said mixture has become homo- 
geneous. The said asphalt cement shall have a 
penetration, determined as herein prescribed, of not 
less than two and one-half (21/2) millimeters and 
not more than seven (7) millimeters. When fifty 
(50) grams of said asphalt cement is heated in an 
uncovered tin box five and one-half (5%) centi- 
meters in diameter and three and one-half ^^1/2) 
centimeters in depth and is held at a temperature 
of three hundred twenty-five (325) degrees Fahren- 
heit for five (5) hours, then it shall have lost not 
m.ore than three (3) per cent by weight, and the 
penetration, determined as herein prescribed, shall 
be not less than one-half of the penetration before 
such heating. A briquette, Dow form, of the said 
asphalt cement of the consistency as used in this 
improvement shall have a ductility, determined as 
herein prescribed, of not less than twenty (20) cen- 
timeters. 

The mixture for the binder course shall be made 
by heating and intimately mixing the said limestone, 
or other stone, the said sand or the said limestone 
screenings and the said asphalt cement. The said

mixture shall contain by weight live (5) per cent 
of bitumen soluble in carbon disulphide; twenty- 
live (25' per cent of said sand or said limestone 
screenings and seventy (70) per cent of said lime- 
stone, or other stone. The said mixture shall be 
spread on the said concrete foundation, and while 
in a hot and plastic condition shall be rolled to an 
even surface with a self-propelled roller weighing 
not less than ten (10) tons. The said binder course 
after ultimate compression shall have a thickness 
of two (2) inches, and the upper surface shall be 
parallel with and one and one-half {iV^) inches be- 
low the upper surface of the finished pavement. 

The mixture for the wearing course shall be made 
by intimately mixing, while hot, the said sand, the 
said asphalt cement and the said levigated stone. 
The said sand and the said asphalt cement shall be 
heated separately to a temperature of not less than 
three hundred (300) degrees Fahrenheit, and the 
said levigated st-one shall be intimately mixed with 
the said sand and then both shall be intimately 
mixed with the said asphalt cement. The said mix- 
ture 9hali contain, by weight, bitumen soluble in 
carbon disulphide eleven (11) per cent; said levi- 
gated stone fourteen (14) per cent; said sand which 
can pass an eighty (80) mesh sieve and cannot pass 
a two hundred (200) mesh sieve twenty-five (25)

requires refining it shall be heated to a temperature 
of not over four hundred fifty (450) degrees Fahren- 
heit until all water and light oils have been driven 
off. At least ninety-eight and one-half (98%) per 
cent of the bitumen contained in the said refined 
asphalt which is soluble in carbon disulphide shall 
be soluble in cold carbon tetra chloride. 

The refined asphalt used in making said asphalt 
cement may also be obtained by the straight reduct- 
ion of asphaltic petroleum until the refined asphalt 
has a consistency not softer than seven (7) milli- 
meters penetration and not harder than two and one-

half (2V-') millimeters penetration, the penetration 
being made with a No. 2 needle weighted with one 
hundred (100) grams acting for five (5) seconds on 
the material at a temperature of seventy-seven (77) 
degrees Fahrenheit. Ninety-eight and one-half 
(981/3) per cent of the said refined asphalt, so ob- 
laine'd, shall be soluble in cold carbon tetra chloride. 
When' fifty (50) grams of said refined asphalt is 
heated in an uncovered tin box five and one-half 
(5V.) centimeters in diameter and three and one- 
half (3%) centimeters in depth and is held at a 
temperature of three hundred twenty-five (325) 
degrees Fahrenheit for five (5) hours, then it shall 
have lost not over two (2) per cent by weight and 
the penetration of the residue thus obtained shall 
be not less than one-half (%) of the penetration 
before such heating, said penetration being determ- 
ined as herein prescribed. The said refined asphalt 
shall have a ductility of not less than sixty (60) 
centimeters at five (5) millimeters penetration de- 
termined as herein prescribed, said ductility being 
determined by elongating a briquette, Dow form of 
said refined asphalt at a uniform rate of five (5) 
centimeters per minute at a temperature of seventy- 
seven (77) degrees Fahrenheit. 

The fiux used in making the asphalt cement shall 
be the residuum obtained by the straight reduction 
of crude petroleum, which flux shall be tested with 
and found suitable to the refined asphalt to be used. 
At least ninety-nine (99) per cent of said flux shall 
be soluble in cold carbon tetra chloride. The flux 
shall have a specific gravity of not less than ninety- 
four one-hundredths (.94) and not more than one 
and ten one-hundredths (1.10) at seventy-seven (77) 
degrees Fahrenheit as compared with water at sev- 
enty-seven (77) degrees Fahrenheit, and when tested 
in a Cleveland Open Cup Oil Tester, it shall not fiash 
below a temperature of three hundred eighty (380) 
degrees Fahrenheit; and when fifty (50) grams of 
the said flux is heated in an uncovered tin box five 
and one-half (51/2) centimeters in diameter and 
three and one-half (31/2) centimeters in depth and 
is held at a temperature of three hundred twenty- 
five (325) degrees Fa-hrenheit for five (5) hours, 
then it shall not have lost over three (3) per cent 
by weight. The flux shall have a penetration of 
not less than thirty-five (35) millimeters, the pene- 
tration being made with a No. 2 needle weighted 
with fifty (50) grams acting for one (1) second, 
the material being tested at seventy-seven (77) de- 
grees Fahrenheit. 

The asphalt cement used in the binder course and 
in the wearing course shall be made from one (1) 
of said refined asphalts or from a mixture of any 
two of said refined asphalts and said flux, if flux 
must be used, provided that the mixture of refined 
asphalts shall contain equal parts of each of the re- 
fined asphalts; and that the said asphalt cement 
shall contain not less than sixty (60) per cent by 
weight of refined asphalt or asphalts. The said 
asphalt cement shall be made by mixing and heating 
the said refined asphalt or asphalts and the said 
flux in a kettle at a temperature not lower than two 
hundred fifty (250) degrees Fahrenheit and not 
higher than three hundred fifty (350) degrees 
Fahrenheit. This mixture shall be thoroughly 
agitated when hot by steam, air or mechanical means 
until the said mixture has become homogeneous. 
The said asphalt cement shall have a penetration, 
determined as herein prescribed, of not less than 
two and one-half (2%) millimeters and not more 
than seven (7) millimeters. When fifty (50) grams 
of said asphalt cement is heated in an uncovered tin 
box five and one-half (5%) centimeters in diameter 



and three and one-half {3V^) centimeters in depth 
and is held at a temperature of three hundred 
twenty-five (325) degrees Fahrenheit for five (5) 
hours, then it shall have lost not more than three 
(3) per cent by weight, and the penetration, deter- 
mined as herein prescribed, shall be not less than 
one-half of the penetration before such heating. A 
briquette, Dow form, of the said asphalt cement of 
the consistency as used in this improvement shall 
have a ductility, determined as herein prescribed, 
of not less than twenty (20) centimeters. 

The mixture for the binder course shall be made 
by heating and intimately mixing the said limestone, 
or other stone, the said sand or the said limestone 
screenings and the said asphalt cement. The said 
mixture shall contain by weight five (5) per cent of 
bitumen soluble in carbon disulphide; twenty-five 
(25) per cent of said sand or said limestone screen- 
ings and seventy (70) per cent of said limestone, or 
other stone. The said mixture shall be spread on 
the said concrete foundation, and while in a hot and 
plastic condition shall be rolled to an even surface 
with a self-propelled roller weighing not less than 
ten (10) tons. The said binder course after ultimate 
compression shall have a thickness of two (2) 
inches, and the upper surface shall be parallel with 
and one and one-half (1^/2) inches below the upper 
surface of the finished pavement. 

The mixture for the wearing course shall be 
made by intimately mixing, while hot, the said sand, 
the said asphalt cement and the said levigated stone. 
The said sand and the said asphalt cement shall be 
heated separately to a temperature of not less than 
three hundred (300) degrees Fahrenheit, and the 
said levigated stone shall be intimately mixed with 
the said sand and then both shall be intimately 
mixed, with the said asphalt cement. The said mix- 
ture shall contain, by weight, bitumen soluble m 
carbon disulphide eleven (11) per cent; said levi- 
gated stone fourteen (14) per cent; said sand which 
can pass an eighty (80) mesh sieve and cannot pass 
a two hundred (200) mesh sieve twenty-five (25) 
per cent; said sand which can pass a forty (40) 
mesh sieve and cannot pass an eighty (80) mesh 
sieve thirty-six (36) per cent; said sand which can 
pass a fen (10) mesh sieve and cannot pass a forty 
(40) mesh sieve twelve (12) per cent; said sand 
which can pass a four (4) mesh sieve and cannot 
pass a ten (10) mesh sieve two (2) per cent. The 
said mixture shall be spread at a temperature ol 
not less than two hundred sixty (260) degrees 
Fahrenheit to an even surface and to such a depth 
that after ultimate compression, it shall have a 
thickness of one and one-half (iy2) inches. The 
wearing course, while still hot and plastic, shall be 
rolled with a self-propelled roller weighing not less 
than ten (10) tons. Natural hydraulic cement shall 
then be spread over the wearing course in such 
quantity that one (1) barrel of natural hydraulic

Chicago, November 3, 1926. 

To the Mayor and Aldermen of the City of Chicago 
in City Council Assembled: 

Your Committee on Local Transportation, to whom 
was referred (July 8, 1926, page 4055) a resolution 
directing appointment of a committee of citizens to 
work out a solution of Chicago's traction problem", 
having had the same under advisement, beg leave to 
report and recommend that said resolution be 
adopted : 

"Whereas, The settlement of Chicago's traction 
problem on a common sense business basis is the 
greatest problem confronting the citizenry in the 
development and growth of Chicago, and 

Whereas, The City of Chicago has spent over 
one million dollars for various opinions and re- 
ports of lawyers and experts, with a view to solv- 
ing this problem; and 

Whereas, The Municipal Reference Library has 
now copies of these various reports and opinions, 
a common sense use of which no doubt would 
solve our traction problem; and 

Whereas, There are now several plans before 
this honorable body which have not to this day 
received proper and due consideration, and which 
might, if properly worked out, give immediate re- 
lief to the general public; and 

Whereas, It is the hope of the people of Chi- 
cago to devise and develop a plan that is non- 
political and non-mercenary, which will give im- 
mediate relief and adequately provide for the 
growth of Chicago; therefore, be it 

Resolved, That the Chairman of tbe Local Trans- 
portation Committee be requested lo appoint, with 
the approval of the City Council, a Citizens' Com- 
mittee consisting of seven responsible Chicago 
citizens who are in no way interested financially 
in any transportation company. This committee 
is advised to make a thorough investigation of 
this problem by availing themselves of the useful 
data on Chicago's traction problem now in the 
Municipal Reference Library, and to meet with 
and discuss with officials of the transportation 
companies the necessary enabling legislation and 
the necessary requisites to solve the problem and 
to report to the City Council at the earliest op- 
portunity."

Whereas, At 66th street where the above- 
named street contAnues a jog is made to the right 
of the main course of Michigan avenue southward 
to Marquette road, which greatly impedes and 
congests tratlic; and 

Whereas, The trafTic whicli this street is com- 
pelled to carry is very heavy owing to the fact 
that South Park avenue is the only "through 
trafTic" street between State street and Cottage 
Grove avenue; and 

Whereas, There is a vast development in the 
territory from Marquette road to the Calumet Dis- 
trict and the people are clamoring for tratTic re- 
lief; and 

Whereas, It would be a great improvement to 
the City of Chicago and would be of much benefit 
to the motorists of our City if Michigan avenue 
were opened and straightened between 63rd street 
and Marquette road; and 

Whereas, Steps ought to be taken as early as 
possible to remedy this situation and to facili- 
tate the handling of trafTic by eliminating this 
jog; therefore, be it 

Ordered, That the Board of Local Improvements 
be and it is hereby directed to draft and submit
